Abstract :
[en] Vibration perception thresholds (VPTs) and thermal discrimination thresholds (TDTs) were investigated in 55 insulin-dependent diabetic children aged 11.3 ± 3.9 years (mean ± SD) and in 81 controls. There was no significant difference in VPTs between the two groups. TDTs were significantly higher in the group of diabetic children (p < 0.03). Eight diabetic children had abnormal thermal sensation and one child had abnormal vibratory sensation. TDT correlated positively with duration of diabetes mellitus (r = 0.25; p < 0.05). Both investigations can be carried out easily and are unobtrusive, which is an important advantage in the examination of children.
