About 20–30% of diabetic patients are affected by DP. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and electrical has been proposed as physical therapies. This study was aimed to investigate the effects of high rate frequency modulation (HRFM) with TENS treatment on patients which have diabetic polyneuropathy (DP). Patients with type 2 diabetes and DP (n=14) both upper extremities were treated for 20 min daily for twenty consecutive days. The patients' values of glucose, amplitude and latency were measured by use of EMG at before TENS, after TENS and following term of TENS. Patients were similar in terms of baseline characteristics, such as age, duration of diabetes, neurological symptoms scores and neurological disability scores. Differences among glucose levels related to before TENS, after TENS and following term of TENS are found statistically significant (p<0.05). Differences for amplitude did not change statistically. Differences on latencies belong to motor and sensorial nerves were found statistically significant (p<0.05). In conclusion, result of the study indicated that TENS treatment has been positive effect on diabetic polyneuropathy.
