abstract

  • A sub-set of 38 individuals with type 1 diabetes that fulfilled a strict criterion of "normal" classification for all 7 measures of neuropathy at baseline, were identified and followed. Corneal nerve morphology, as captured with corneal confocal microscopy demonstrated the greatest, and most sustained degeneration over a 4 year period.
