    Damage of small nerve fibers may lead to a large variety of clinical symptoms. Small-fiber neuropathy underlies the symptoms of painful diabetic neuropathy, which may decrease quality of life. It also contributes to the poor prognosis of diabetic neuropathy because it plays a key role in the...

    Resting skin blood flow (RI!) and the venoarteriolar response (VAR = the vasocontrictor response on standing) have been studied in 100 patients with diabetic neuropathy, in 100 diabetics without neuropathy, and in 100 normal subjects by laser Doppler flowmetry. Capillary filtration was also...

    It is generally believed that diabetic neuropathy is due to chronic hyperglycaemia. However, experience from insulinoma patients and experimental studies show that hypoglycaemia may also cause neuropathy. Accordingly, the plantar nerves of diabetic eu-/hypoglycaemic BB/Wor rats treated with...
