Abstract

Introduction: Peripheral neuropathy is a complication of diabetes which causes considerable indisposition and frailty. Metabolic derangement in diabetes affects nerve.
Aim: To carry out electrophysiological study of nerves in diabetics and to correlate it with blood sugar.
Materials and Methods: Nerves of upper limb were assessed for motor nerve conduction with the help of surface electrodes and windows based (Neuro perfect software) computerized system in 50 type 2 diabetic male patients and 50 healthy males. The nerves chosen for study were median and ulnar. Parameters studied were distal latency and conduction velocity.
Results: Observation revealed increased distal latency and decreased conduction velocity in diabetics with statistically significant difference. These parameters also showed association with blood sugar levels in diabetics.
Conclusions: Diabetes affect nerves as indicated by declined motor nerve function through electrophysiological testing. Elevated blood sugar levels are related with nerve damage.

Keywords: Peripheral neuropathy, Diabetes, Electrophysiological tests, Conduction velocity.
