Abstract Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) affects approximately half of patients with diabetes. Neuropathic pain is a major complaint of patients with diabetic polyneuropathy. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy can also lead to autonomic dysfunction. This article provides an outline of the clinical subtypes, pathophysiological features, and diagnosis of DPN. Disease-modifying treatments are reviewed, with particular attention paid to DPN pain management.
