- Early detection of neuropathy in adolescents with type 1 diabetes
- I investigate the presence of small fibre -, large fibre - and autonomic neuropathy in 60 adolescents with T1D and 20 healthy controls. Associations between the results of neuropathic tests and metabolic control (HbA1c), body mass index, diabetes duration, quality of life, and biochemical - and genetic marker will be analysed. The aim is to provide clinicians with new screening methods for better detection of early neuropathy.
Future research plans
Following my PhD I plan to continue my research within neuropathy in diabetic populations. I plan to spend a couple of years abroad to do cutting edge research.
The overall aim with my research is to help patients all over the world live the best life possible with the diesease.
