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.

ISBN 10 : 3319073117
Pages : 486 pages

Peripheral nerve analysis is a challenging task for pathologists, given the advent of new diagnoses and techniques of analysis and the impact of molecular genetics. This book presents a simple, logical method for constructing a differential diagnosis based on pathology and clinical presentation. It also provides advice on the selection of ancillary molecular, immunohistochemical and genetic techniques to establish a definitive diagnosis. Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. The pathologist will benefit greatly from the identification of a variety of artifacts and normal structures occasionally encountered in nerve biopsies that need to be distinguished from specific pathologic alterations. This user-friendly, practical text will be an invaluable aid in achieving the most specific diagnosis possible.

Peripheral Neuropathy & Neuropathic Pain
Author : Professor Gérard Said
Publisher : tfm Publishing Limited

ISBN 10 : 1910079006
Pages : 200 pages

Written by one of the world's leading experts — Professor Gérard Said MD FRCP, Dpt de Neurologie, Hôpital de la Salpêtrière, Paris, France Peripheral neuropathy is a common medical condition, the diagnosis of which is often protracted or delayed. It is not always easy to relate a neuropathy to a specific cause. Many people do not receive a full diagnosis, their neuropathy often being described as 'idiopathic' or 'cryptogenic'. It is said that in Europe, one of the most common causes is diabetes mellitus but there are also many other known potential causes. The difficulty of diagnosis, the limited number of treatment options, a perceived lack of knowledge of the subject —except in specialised clinics, the number of which are limited — all add to the difficulties which many neuropathy patients have to face. Another additional problem for many patients is that once having received a full, or even a partial diagnosis, they are then often discharged back to their primary healthcare team who, in many instances, know little about this condition and how it may impact upon their patients' lives. In order to help bridge this gap in medical knowledge and to give healthcare providers a better understanding of this often distressing condition, The Neuropathy Trust has commissioned a new book on this complex topic. Written by one of the world's leading experts on neuropathy, Professor Gérard Said, it is a 'must read' and also a handy reference book for doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, chiropodists/podiatrists and other health professionals.As well as covering the anatomy of the nervous system and the basic pathological processes that may affect the peripheral nerves, the book covers a whole range of neuropathic conditions. These include, for example, Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, vasculitic neuropathies, infectious neuropathies, diabetic and other metabolic neuropathies, hereditary neuropathies and neuropathies in patients with cancer. Given the almost explosive increase in diabetes predicted over the coming years and the high incidence of HIV infections alone, not to mention all the other possible causes of peripheral neuropathy, no self-respecting medical unit should be without a copy of this new book on their shelves. The author, Professor Gérard Said, is based in the Department of Neurology at the prestigious Hôpital de la Salpêtrière in Paris. He has devoted a lifetime to the study of peripheral neuropathy and — alongside other great neurological names — added much to the world's ever-growing store of knowledge on this complex but fascinating condition which affects so many individuals.

Peripheral neuropathies are diseases which affect the neuromuscular apparatus between the muscles or sensory receptors and connections in the spinal cord and the brain. They affect approximately 20-30% of children attending neuromuscular clinics. Uniquely, this text deals exclusively with such disorders in children and draws together the rapidly expanding but widely scattered knowledge in the field. It is a highly practical text, written by clinical neurologists with long experience in physiology, histopathology and management of neuropathy. This second edition retains the basic structure of its successful predecessor and continues to be liberally illustrated with real case histories. However, extensive revisions and expansion of the text have enabled it to encompass the major developments, including recent advances in molecular biology and therapy of metabolic and inflammatory neuropathies.

Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common diseases most people never heard of and yet, upwards of 20 million Americans have it! It is estimated that 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes have mild to severe neuropathy. That fact alone is staggering. Other causes include vitamin deficiencies, autoimmune diseases, kidney, liver or thyroid disorders, cancer and a variety of other medical conditions. According to the Neuropathy Association the extent and importance of peripheral neuropathy has not yet been adequately recognized. The disease is apt to be misdiagnosed, or thought to be merely a side effect of another disease. However, people from all walks of life live with this neurological illness that has been described by those who have it as a tingling or burning sensation in their limbs, pins and needles and numbness. You Can Cope with Peripheral Neuropathy: 365 Tips for Living a Full Life was written by both a patient-expert and doctor and is a welcome addition to the information on this subject. It covers such diverse topics as: What to ask at doctor appointments Making the house easier to navigate with neuropathy Where to find a support group Using vitamins and herbs for treatment Tips for traveling And much, much more! You Can Cope With Peripheral Neuropathy is a compendium of tips, techniques, and life-task shortcuts that will help everyone who lives with this painful condition. It will also serve as a useful resource for their families, caregivers, and health care providers.
