|Study Completion Date:||October 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Male participants, type1 diabetic with diabetic neuropathy
Diabetes without neuropathy
Male participants, type1 diabetic without diabetic neuropathy
Non diabetic control
Male participants, control group non diabetic
The aim of the study is to examine how suitable a hand-held measuring probe (DDD-probe) using NIR (near infrared light) as well as impedance (conductivity), is to detect early signs of diabetic neuropathy.
The DDD-probe is put directly on the skin and is measuring by the use of light and impedance.
