    Comparison of Serum C-Peptide with Peripheral Neuropathy in Type II Diabetes Mellitus
    Author(s): S Kaviprasanna*

    The subjects in group IV or those with severe neuropathy falling in class 3 had much lower serum C peptide value (i.e.) 0.7 ± 0.47 against the normal value of 0.7 to 1.9 ng/ml and with moderate neuropathy was 0.9 ± 0.42 ng/ml which was slightly better than that of group IV, Mild in III and V. nerve conduction studies as another parameter to determine the severity of Type 2 Diabetes mellitus as it is one of the most common microvascular complications of this disease and it often goes unrecognised until the patient has gone in for complications. we were also able to establish that even those cases with no signs or symptoms of neuropathy showed abnormal nerve functions in nerve conduction studies that we performed in our lab. Also those cases that had the lowest C-Peptide had the most severe neuropathy grade... Read More»
