All patients underwent Electrodiagnostic procedures for the presence or absence of polyneuropathy, using nerve conduction studies by recording amplitudes, velocities and latencies of minimal two (sural, peroneal) and maximum six nerves.
Objective: To determine the frequency of peripheral polyneuropathy in patients having diabetes mellitus with symptoms of polyneuropathy using electrodiagnostic procedure.
13) When clinical symptoms are not conclusive and common CTS diagnostic procedures are unable to confirm the presence of median nerve compression, it may be necessary to use electrodiagnostic procedures.
These practitioners rarely used electrodiagnostic procedures, preferring conservative initial treatment such as wrist support and anti-inflammatory medication, while cortisone injections were rarely used.
We initiated this study on patient literacy and readability of patient education materials after noting the difficulties patients had understanding the informational reading material available on diagnosis or on electrodiagnostic procedures.
Therefore, this reading material represents an important source of potential information to patients on their diagnosis or upcoming electrodiagnostic procedure.
