Answer

A study by Jende et al indicated that in patients with type 1 diabetes, the predominant nerve lesions of distal symmetrical diabetic neuropathy develop in relation to poor glycemic control and nerve conduction loss, while in type 2 diabetes, these lesions arise in association with lipid metabolism changes.
