Although the incidence of an abnormal M/F ratio was relatively low, its assessment together with the SCV or FWCV provided a more specific diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy.
Table-1: Nerve conduction studies Diabetes Neuropathy Control (N = 100) (N = 45) (N = 25) MCV of post 43.7 [+ or -] 5.4 45.9 [+ or -] 47.1 [+ or -] tibial nerve *([section]) 4.7 2.9 (m/s) SCV of sural 44.7 [+ or -] 47.8 [+ or -] 48.3 [+ or -] nerve (m/s) ll.l t 8.3 5.7 FWCV of post 47.3 [+ or -] 40.0 [+ or -] 48.3 [+ or -] tibial nerve 5.9 (^) 6.3 * 4 (m/s) M/F Ratio 0.84 [+ or -] 1.04 [+ or -] 0.90 [+ or -] 0.09 * 0.12 * 0.06 Data are means [+ or -] SD.
This worker had rather high DL (8.24 msec) and low levels of MCV (42.5 m/sec), FWCV (49.8 m/sec), and SNCV (39.5 m/sec) but did not show abnormal vibration sensation.
On the other hand, a comparison based on the exposure levels ([less than or equal to] 2.64 or [greater than or equal to] 8.84 ppm) showed that workers with high exposure levels showed significantly high values of MCV (56.4 [+ or -] 12.9 m/sec), FWCV (54.7 [+ or -] 2.8 m/sec), hematocrit (0.393 [+ or -] 0.032), and POMS tension (5.14 [+ or -] 1.77) and lower values of FSH (9.0 [+ or -] 6.3 mIU/mL) and POMS vigor (18.6 [+ or -] 2.5), compared with the lowexposure group (MCV, 47.3 [+ or -] 8.3 m/sec; FWCV, 52.0 [+ or -] 1.9 m/sec; hematocrit, 0.356 [+ or -] 0.034; POMS tension, 2.73 [+ or -] 1.49; FSH, 27.7 [+ or -] 35.3 mIU/mL; POMS vigor, 24.3 [+ or -] 4.0) but did not show any significant association with other examined indices.
