Purpose: - To assess the glycosylated hemoglobin in experimental and control group, to compare the sensory nerve conduction between experimental and control group and to correlate the motor nerve conduction between experimental and control group. Methods: - An experimental design was adopted. Twenty diabetic patients and twenty health individuals were selected by random sampling technique. BMI, FBS, PPBS and HBA1C estimated for all subjects and nerve conduction studies were carried out on Neuro perfect EMG-200 system. Results: - The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings revealed that in experimental group FBS, PPBS, HbA1C is higher, sensory nerve conduction decreased and is significant with control group and motor conduction is in normal range and is not significant. Conclusion: - With proper glycemic control the motor nerve changes and complications of sensory disturbances can be prevented.
