Abstract The purpose of our research was to define the most important diagnostic criteria in early diagnosis of distal polyneuropathy in diabetic patients. Participants included 175 patients with diabetes mellitus types 1 and 2 (male-to-female ratio 89:86, mean (±SD) age 42.02±15.27 years) with risk diabetic polyneuropathy. Research included Total Symptom Score, Neuropathy Symptom Score, Neuropathy Impairment Score, Visual Analog Score, standard somatic and neurologic status were evaluated in all patients at the beginning of the study. Vibration sensitivity investigated on lower extremities by means of the computer diagnostic equipment " Vibrotester - MBN" (Moscow, Russian Federation) in a wide range of vibration frequencies (8, 16, 32, 63, 125, 250, 500 Hz). Statistical data processing was using Statistica v.8.0 (StatSoft, USA). Diabetic polyneuropathy was diagnosed in 166 (94.7%) patients with diabetes mellitus. The most sensitive methods were computer esthesiometry method, Neuropathy Impairment Score, and their combination.
