AbstractDiabetic neuropathies (DN) encompass a wide range of nerve abnormalities and are common with prevalence rates reported between 5% and 100% depending on the diagnostic criteria.Diabetic neuropathy is a very problematic complication of diabetes mellitus associated with great morbidity, mortality and a huge economic burden. This study was a Cross sectional non interventional study in the Department of General Medicine, Sree Gokulam Medical College and Research Foundation among Patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus admitted in ward and attending OPD in Department of General Medicine, Sree Gokulam Medical College and Research Foundation was done between January 2019 to August 2020. The mean MNSI global score was 9.10, MNSI A mean score was 2.9 and MNSI B mean score in 4.95. The presence of diabetic neuropathy was present in 135 patients (44.8%). Correlation between diabetic neuropathy and age showed that older age groups had significantly higher diabetic neuropathy. Similarly, more duration of diabetes means significantly higher number of neuropathy patients. Hypertension and Dyslipidaemia higher duration showed patients had significantly neuropathy. HbA1C showed higher levels of HbA1C in patients with diabetic neuropathy.
