Özet

OBJECTIVES: Metabolic disease affect all systems in the body, including the peripheral nervous system, but there is a controversy as whether to consider hyperlipidemia is a cause of peripheral neuropathy. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether hyperlipidemic subjects with no clinical symptom or sign of peripheral neuropathy showed nerve conduction abnormalities or subclinical peripheral neuropathy according to the universally accepted electrophysiological criteria.
