Aim and Objectives:- To study the Comparison of Efficiency of Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction studies (NCV) velocity in diagnosis of Diabetic Neuropathy.
To evaluate the more efficient diagnosis in Diabetic
Neuropathy between the EMG and NCV studies.
Materials: A Total of 30 diabetic subjects were taken between the ages of 40-70 years from MGM hospital, Vaagdevi physiotherapy and pediatric rehabilitation center, Warangal.
Method Of Data Collection: History of subjects with diabetes. EMG and NCV studies in diagnosis of Diabetic Neuropathy were performed using Bio-Tech Company 2007 model. Subjects were informed about the study and written consent is taken.
Results: EMG output, out of 30 subjects 14 subjects are diagnosed with Diabetic Neuropathy. So the probability rate is 46% (P= 0.46). Therefore it is less than 50% of success rate.
NCV output, out of 30 subjects 27 subjects are diagnosed with Diabetic Neuropathy. So the probability rate is 90% (P= 0.9 1). Therefore it is more than 50% of success rate. It is nearer to 100%.
Conclusion: The results of outcome measure provide strong evidence which conclude NCV is proven to be a momentous and effective approach in improving diagnostic criteria of Diabetic Neuropathy.
