Diagnostic capability of retinal thickness measures in diabetic peripheral neuropathy Academic Article uri icon


MeSH Major

  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Vitamin D Deficiency


  • The GCC FLV can differentiate individuals with diabetic neuropathy from healthy controls, while the inferior RNFL thickness is able to differentiate those with greater degrees of neuropathy from those with mild or no neuropathy, both with an acceptable level of accuracy. Optical coherence tomography represents a non-invasive technology that aids in detection of retinal structural changes in patients with established diabetic neuropathy. Further refinement of the technique and the analytical approaches may be required to identify patients with minimal neuropathy.
