What is the best screening test for diabetic sensory neuropathy?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Screening methods such as monofilament testing, “on-off” testing with a 128-Hz tuning fork, and superficial pain sensation all detect diabetic sensory neuropathy (DSN), although negative testing does not definitely rule out the diagnosis. Comprehensive scores based on symptoms and physical examination are not as effective (SOR: B, cohort studies).
