Diabetic painless and painful peripheral neuropathy remains the most frequent complication of diabetes mellitus, but the pathophysiology remains undescribed, there are no robust clinical endpoints and no efficient treatment exists. This hampers good clinical practice, fruitful clinical research and successful pharmacological trials, necessary for the development of early detection, prevention and treatment. This chapter supplies an update on background and treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Goals and perspectives for future clinical and scientific approaches are also described.
