Prachi Tiwari and Zuheb Ahmed SiddiquiAbstract:
Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India with more than 62 million diabetic individuals currently diagnosed with the disease. Proprioception is the ability to perceive position and movement. Proprioception can help in joint stability, postural correction (control) and many other conscious sensations. The aim is to identify the effect of blood sugar levels, both Fasting and Post Prandial sugar levels on Proprioception in Diabetic individual. It is a cross-
sectional study with total of 30 subjects aged 45-
59 years with a 5-
10 years of diabetic history were included in the study and their blood sugar levels were examined using glucometer. Lower limb proprioception was assessed by Isokinetic Dynamometer. The results of data analysis demonstrated that fall in Blood sugar level leads to poor lower limb Proprioception in diabetic individuals. The Result came out to be significant at p
<0.05.The results demonstrated that changes in blood sugar levels is significantly correlated with poor proprioception in diabetic individuals as diabetes damages muscle spindle receptors which decreases proprioceptive input.Pages: 214-216 | 514 Views 2 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
