Abstract
Context: To correlate Diabetic peripheral neuropathy with peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in patients with type2 diabetes mellitus.
Aims: To correlate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness of DM patients with Diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Settings and Design: Cross-sectional analytical study.
Methods and Material: This hospital based cross-sectional study included patients attending the outpatient department of our institution with the following criteria, 50 subjects diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus were included.
Results: It showed a significant (0.014) thinning of global peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in left eyes with diabetic peripheral neuropathy positive comparison to no diabetic peripheral neuropathy patients. There was no significant difference in the right eye.
Conclusions: Individuals with diabetic peripheral neuropathy showed significant thinning in peripapillary retinal nerve fibre thickness. This may suggest a common pathway of neurodegeneration for both these complication. Peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness can be used as a means of screening for diabetic peripheral neuropathy to improve the efficiency of clinical diabetic peripheral neuropathy detection.
