Abstract

We sought to determine influence of diabetes mellitus on GBS course and short-term prognosis. Among the 257 GBS patients included in this retrospective study, diabetes mellitus was present in 17%. The degree of disability at admission and on discharge was assessed according to the GBS Disability Scale (mild disability = 0-3, severe disability = 4-6). Even after correction for age, diabetes mellitus was significantly associated with more severe disability at nadir (OR=3.4, P < 0.05) and on discharge (OR=2.0, P < 0.05). Linear regression analysis with multiple factors included showed that age and presence of diabetes were significant predictors of severe disability at nadir (adjusted R(2) =0.21, P < 0.05), and on discharge (adjusted R(2) =0.19, P < 0.05). The presence of diabetes mellitus affects short-term prognosis of GBS, independent of age.
