Peripheral nerves are changing in patients with diabetes and the exact process is still not fully understood.

Using synchrotron imaging, a team of researchers from Lund University, ESRF and DTU have investigated peripheral nerves from patients with diabetes. These studies reveal the 3D structure of axons, and how – to the surprise of the researchers – regenerating nerves twist around each other.
