abstract

  • These studies indicate that there is a relationship between the specific nerve fiber dysfunction in the patient and the type of neuronal cell killed, not only for diabetic neuropathy but also for known forms of autoimmune neuropathies. Such toxic factors may contribute to diabetic neuropathy by acting in concert with hyperglycemia to damage sensory/autonomic neurons.
