PMID: 35226258.


Painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN) is a prevalent and debilitating condition, characterized by severe burning, tingling, and lancinating pain usually located in the distal lower extremities. In addition to manifesting with severe pain, PDN may also be associated with poor quality of life and sleep, mood disorders, burns, falls, and social withdrawal. The authors appraised the current body of literature for evidence on neuromodulation interventions for PDN.
