Comprised of contributions from a wealth of experts worldwide, this volume summarizes the latest research findings and new developments in diagnosis and treatment of diabetic neuropathy. While the actual cause of diabetic neuropathy, a common complication of diabetes mellitus, is not known, it is likely that no single mechanism predominates--rather that various mechanisms interact and culminate in the expression of neuropathy. The progressive nature of diabetic neuropathy and the high morbidity associated with it emphasize the need for early identification of patients at risk, particularly since the disease, if diagnosed early, can be corrected or controlled by intensified insulin treatment and strict metabolic control.

Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is very common, affecting up to 50 % of all diabetic patients. It can result in disabling neuropathic pain, lower extremity amputations and troublesome autonomic neuropathies.

Diabetic neuropathy is very common, affecting up to 50 % of all diabetic patients. It can result in disabling neuropathic pain, lower extremity amputations and troublesome autonomic neuropathies. With the rising incidence of diabetes the prevalence of neuropathy is also likely to increase. This pocketbook discusses the condition in depth.

Painful Diabetic Neuropathy in Clinical Practice provides a concise, didactic and essential resource for clinicians in the management of neuropathic pain in diabetic patients. This volume opens with overviews of epidemiology, classification and clinical features, including a discussion of the negative effect of painful neuropathic symptoms on quality of life. These are followed by a chapter on diagnosis and staging, which includes approaches to history taking, clinical examination, pain assessment scales, testing and staging. The book concludes with a chapter on the various approaches in the management of neuropathic pain, including the most up-to-date guidelines on the pharmacological treatment of this condition. This concise handbook is an invaluable reference for primary care practitioners and diabetologists who wish to keep up to date with the diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain.

Diabetic Neuropathy identifies the most accurate early biomarkers of nerve damage to better understand pathophysiology and diagnose diabetic neuropathy in the clinical care of patients, and in particular, permit an accurate evaluation of future therapies in clinical trials. This succinct reference focuses on the current data and research on diabetic neuropathy and is essential reading for researchers in endocrinology, neurology and pharmacology, along with clinicians that need to better understand the novel pathogenetic pathways leading to diabetic neuropathy and the treatments. Serves as a starting point for researchers and medical professionals on risk factors, prevention and newly discovered mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis and eventually treatments of diabetic neuropathy Discusses a broad range of issues relating to diabetic neuropathy, from epidemiology, to pathophysiology, genetics, advances in diagnostic techniques, and the latest clinical trials and clinical management

Diabetic neuropathy is amongst the most common of the late complications of diabetes, affecting up to 50% of older patients with Type 2 diabetes. It can result in disabling neuropathic pain, lower extremity amputations and troublesome autonomic neuropathies (gastroparesis, erectile dysfunction, sudden cardiac death and so forth). With the rising incidence of diabetes the prevalence of neuropathy is also likely to increase. Over recent years, there have been new advances in our understanding and treatment of diabetic neuropathies and the problems associated with the disease.

The diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy is based on the diagnosis of diabetes, typical symptoms and clinical findings, as well as exclusion of other causes leading to neuropathy. Neuropathy that affects the large fibres can be verified objectively by ENMG and small fibre neuropathy is revealed by quantitative sensory threshold testing. The loss of small nerve fibres may also be demonstrated by skin biopsy. Neuropathy may be the first sign of type 2 diabetes.The loss of protective sensation as a consequence of peripheral neuropathy is the most important risk factor of diabetic foot ulcer. Small fibre neuropathy may already emerge during the phase of impaired glucose tolerance. 11–25% of the patients may have peripheral neuropathy in the pre-diabetic phase already.
