Diabetes neuropathy predicted by blood test

According to a diabetes research team, a common type of blood test could help healthcare professionals to identify which diabetes patients face a greater risk of developing diabetes neuropathy, one of the most common diabetes complications .
A study conducted by the University of Michigan and Wayne State University concluded that patients with elevated triglycerides were more likely to experience neuropathy issues within a year.
The team made it clear that people with diabetes must control lipid counts as strictly as they control blood glucose levels. Dr. Sulliva, co-first author of the study, reportedly commented: “In our study, elevated serum triglycerides were the most accurate at predicting nerve fibre loss, compared to all other measures.”
