Diabetic neuropathy is essentially quite varied as it relates to many types of nerves, all in the same human body. The target organs, the functions regulated by each type, the physical, biochemical, and electrophysiological characteristics are different for each set. Within each set there are at least two divisions. The development of abnormalities in each set and different types of many such sets also affects a single organ system or participates in affecting other, different systems with an overlap. This cannot be viewed in isolation from each other and in the context and perspective of varied pathophysiological changes it brings about in the body. This chapter brings out the functional anatomy which will form the basis for clinical presentation of Diabetic Neuropathy in Clinical Practice.
