Neuropathy can be ruled out by physical examination and history. However, nerve conduction studies and electromyography can document the characteristics of the neuropathy (eg, axonal, demyelinating) and its localization (eg, mononeuropathy vs radiculopathy or distal neuropathy) and, possibly, the severity and even prognosis for morbidity. Thus, numerous consensus panels recommend the inclusion of electrophysiologic testing in the evaluation of diabetic neuropathy.
