Diabetic neuropathy is the one of the serious secondary complications of diabetes mellitus in which an alteration or a damage in nerve cells is observed. The nerve disorders can be developed at any time, but the possibility of the development increases with the longer duration of diabetes. The damage can be occurred in the sensory, motor, and autonomic nervous system, therefore the damage is observed in the innervated organs and systems. As a result, diabetic neuropathy is the most common cause of non-traumatic amputations and autonomic failure. In their lifetime, diabetic patients with diabetic neuropathy have a 15% incidence of undergoing one or more amputations.
