Research description

  • 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.
