The local temperature tests demonstrated that the diabetic patients have impaired vasodilation in response to local heating. The tendency for impaired low frequency pulsations of the blood flow associated with endothelial and neurogenic activities in both diabetes groups was observed. Local thermal tests induced variations in perfusion and its spectral characteristics, which were different in the groups under study. In our opinion, the obtained preliminary results can be a basis for further research and provide a deeper understanding of pathological processes that drive microvascular abnormalities caused by diabetes mellitus.
