Objective: Double peak sensory responses elicited with submaximal stimulation is an electrophysiological method that has not been studied previously in pathological conditions. The second peak of the response was claimed to be produced by anodal stimulation and originated from the most distal regions of the nerve fibers. The objective of the study was to test double peak sensory responses in two groups of diabetic patients in two different stages of the disease.
