Sample text

Fernyhough The wealth of reference data already collected means that STZ-diabetic rodents are likely to remain the dominant model of diabetic neuropathy. However, all data obtained in STZ-injected rodents should be interpreted with appropriate caution and the provenance of newly identified disorders validated using groups cotreated with 6-O-methyl glucose or insulin. Further, given the possibility that the pathogenesis of diabetic neuropathy may differ in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, STZ-diabetic rodents may best be deployed in combination with models of type 2 diabetes to evaluate whether new disorders and therapies are pertinent to both forms of the disease.

If the neuropathy assessments had been done at 4 years, then the outcome of the NATHAN study could be compared directly to the DCCT results, but that is not the case. Also, the study populations were different in that the NATHAN study had a predominance of patients with Type 2 diabetes. When factors that might have influenced the outcome were evaluated, those with a normal BMI, normal blood pressure, and higher burden related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and neuropathy were more responsive to treatment (Ziegler, Low, Freeman, Tritschler, & Vinik, 2016), suggesting that a multifactorial approach when treating DSP will be required.

Small changes in glycemic control or lipid profile might also have a longer effect on NCS parameters than expected (Perkins, Dholasania, Buchanan, & Bril, 2010). NCS should be used as an adjunct measure to confirm lack of deterioration of nerve function if positive symptoms such as pain disappear, to exclude the possibility that progressive disease or therapeutic interventions have alleviated pain by ablating nerve function. , 2011), questions about the validity of the results need to be addressed.
