Abstract

The balance of evidence favors the premise that hyperglycemia is an important determinant of diabetic neuropathy and improved glycemic control is beneficial for nerve function. The latter is true whether assessed by electrophysiological or functional (vibratory threshold) criteria. Whether these findings can be translated into a noticeable clinical response or whether prevention of clinical disease can be demonstrated awaits the outcome of large-scale clinical trials such as the Diabetes Complications and Control Trial now under way.
