This study for the first time combined transmission electron microscopy technique and unbiased stereological principle to quantitatively investigate the myelinated nerve fibers in the white matter of Long-Evans rats.
The initial injury in the diabetic patient is from chronic hyperglycemia, and the first damage occurs in the blood vessels at the endothelial cell (5) interfering with the myelinated nerve fibers and causing damage and interfering with nerve blood flow.

Polydefkis and his associates concluded that the measurement of ENFD in skin punch biopsies is a more sensitive marker for detecting neuropathy early than are nerve conduction studies that test the function of large myelinated nerve fibers (Neurology 2003;60:108-11).
