Data are means ± SD. Characteristics of the study groups were compared by one-way ANOVA with Tamhane T2 post hoc tests. Diabetes type and duration were analyzed by χ2 and unpaired t tests accordingly. NA, not applicable.

*P < 0.01 vs. healthy control subjects;

P < 0.01 vs. diabetes without neuropathy.
