Incidence of lumbosacral radiculoplexus neuropathy and association with diabetes

Takeaway

  • Incidence of lumbosacral radiculoplexus neuropathy (LRPN) is greater than that of other common inflammatory neuropathies in a US population, and diabetes mellitus (DM), but not pre-diabetes mellitus (pre-DM), is a risk factor for its development.

Why this matters ?

  • Effective treatment of people with pre-DM may help to prevent development of DM and, consequently, LRPN.
