New recommendations for diabetic neuropathy

The German Diabetes Society (DDG) has published new practical recommendations for diabetic neuropathy. The main topic is pain relief for nerve damage.

"About 13 to 26 percent of people with diabetes have painful neuropathy," explains the team of authors. In line with the importance of this topic, they cover all aspects of peripheral and autonomic diabetic neuropathies on ten pages of the report. From the definition and risk factors to screening, basic and advanced diagnostics to differential diagnoses and treatment strategies, you will find everything important in the report.

The clearly arranged questionnaires and tables with compact overviews of diagnostic criteria, (neurological) examination methods and therapy options are particularly helpful. You can find the recommendations here. (pm)
