Data are median (range) and n (%).

*

Family history of possible neuropathy was significantly more common (P < 0.05) for patients with normal OGTT than for those with either IGT or diabetes;

complaints of neuropathic pain (SP plus USP) were significantly more common in patients with IGT than in neuropathy patients whose OGTT was normal (P < 0.025). S, sensory exclusive; SP, sensory exclusive with neuropathic pain; MS, motor and sensory; MSP, motor and sensory with neuropathic pain.
