Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and peripheral neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Vitamin D is involved in the development of DPN in type 2 diabetic patients, and vitamin D deficiency is very likely to be associated with DPN in type 2 diabetic patients. Further studies are needed to validate the association between vitamin D deficiency and DPN (Journal of Diabetes Investigation)


Intrinsic Foot Muscle And Plantar Tissue Changes In Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

In the present study, we noted a substantial decrease in intrinsic foot muscles and plantar tissue thickness in T2DM subjects as compared to NDM subjects. This reasons out that structural changes in the foot in an antecedent to clinically apparent PN (Journal of Diabetes)


Early phase glucagon and insulin secretory abnormalities, but not incretin secretion, are similarly responsible for hyperglycemia after ingestion of nutrients

Disordered early phase insulin and glucagon secretions but not incretin secretion are involved in hyperglycemia after ingestion of nutrients in T2DM of even a short duration (Journal of Diabetes and Its Complications)
