Sammanfattning : Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease that causes secondary complications such as peripheral neuropathy. it is generally believed that diabetic neuropathy is due to chronic hyperglycaemia. In order to understand the pathophysiology of diabetic neuropathy many workers have examined nerves from diabetic rats. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Hyperglycaemia caused by insulin deficiency is believed to play a major role in the de-velopment of neuropathy in diabetic patients. The clinical and pathological features of diabetic neuropathy vary considerably, although sensory and autonomic dysfunctions are the most common characteristics. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background/aim. The incidence of microvascular complications has been reported to be unchanged the last decades. However, in randomized clinical trials it has been shown that improved metabolic control can reduce the development of long term complications. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. The new WHO criteria for classification of diabetes takes into account also clinical stages dividing the diabetic patients into noninsulin requiring (NIR), insulin requiring for control (IRC) and insulin requiring for survival (IRS) subgroups.

Sammanfattning : The main aim with the work in this thesis is to increase the understanding of the effects diabetic neuropathy has on the epidermal nerve fibers and thereby find methods to detect the disorder at an earlier stage. Epidermal nerve fibers (ENFs) are small sensory nerve fibers in the skin, sensing heat and pain. LÄS MER
