Pirart followed 4400 subjects with diabetes in a Belgian clinic for the development of complications between 1947 and 1973 (34). The cumulative incidence of neuropathy was 50% after 25 years of follow-up, and was found to occur more frequently in subjects with poorer glucose control by urine and blood testing.

Prospective studies of large cohorts of diabetic subjects would likely yield the best quality information concerning potential causative risk factors for diabetic neuropathy. Because of the low frequency of occurrence of diabetic focal neuropathies, the case–control approach would be best suited to identify risk factors for these outcomes. One can hope that these efforts will lead to better methods to prevent this difficult to manage complication of DM. REFERENCES 1. Rothman KJ. Modern Epidemiology.
