Abstract

Diabetes is a major health problem due to its high prevalence and chronic complications that lead to disability and reduced quality of life. Among the complications, diabetic neuropathy, with its many forms, is the most common. Glycemic control plays a crucial role in the occurrence of chronic complications. Recently, with the advent of new technologies for continuous glycemic monitoring, the role of glycemic variability in the occurrence, progression, evaluation and treatment of chronic complications is increasingly understood. The widespread use of these technologies in clinical practice will optimize the care of patients with diabetes.
