Consensus guidelines have been developed for the first time for the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain associated with diabetes. The publication was put together over the course of a two-day meeting of leading pain management specialists in 2005 and was jointly sponsored by the American Society of Pain Educators (ASPE), Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and through an educational grant from Eli Lilly & Co. The guidelines have been published as part of a continuing medical education supplement in the April 2006 issue of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings and can be accessed at http://www.mayoclinicproceedings.com.
