Diabetic neuropathy is a disorder characterized by nerves malfunctioning. The number of skin nerve fibers in the skin decreases and the arrangement of the nerves becomes more clustered as the neuropathy gets worse. These observations suggest that the changes in the nerve structure are guided by some type of a thinning process. Through collecting data from both healthy and patients suffering from diabetic neuropathy we have developed mathematical models to understand how the nerves die.
