The autonomic nervous system in alcoholic and diabetic neuropathy.
Proc Aust Assoc Neurol. 1975; 12:145-50.PA

Abstract

Tests of autonomic function were performed on 10 controls, 16 subjects with diabetic neuropathy and 12 subjects with alcoholic neuropathy. Abnormal sweating occurred in 10/10 alcoholics (100%) and 10/10 diabetics (100%) who were examined. An abnormal Valsalva ratio was present in 7/11 (64%) of diabetics and only 2/9 (22%) of alcoholics. Denervation hypersensitivity to phenylephrine occurred in 2/8 (25%) of diabetics and was absent in alcoholics. A quantitative assessment of baroreceptor function was made. In diabetics there was a reduced resting heart period, heart period range and mean gain, whilst these parameters were essentially normal in alcoholics.
