Very good eye, spelling is never a minor point in database searching. I
copied the spelling from the origninal message and it looked funny to me
but at three o'clock in the morning, correct spellings were not at the
forefront of my critical reading skills, I thought that I might have been
incorrect. Spelling has never been one of my favorite hobbies.

So back to the good database and a check of the correctly spelled
proprioception with diabetes leads these two citations to add to my list.

Lord SR. Caplan GA. Colagiuri R. Colagiuri S. Ward JA. Sensori-motor
function in older persons with diabetes.
Diabetic Medicine. 10(7):614-8, 1993 Aug-Sep.

Dasmahapatra A. Duran W. Lavietes MH. Inspiratory reflexes in diabetes
mellitus. Chest. 97(3 Suppl):43S-44S, 1990 Mar.


Thank you for pointing this out.
