Basic description

Developed in 1994

The Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI) is designed to screen for the presence of diabetic neuropathy. The MNSI is designed to be used in an outpatient setting by primary care or other providers

The first part of the screening instrument, the history questionnaire, consists of 15 self-administered "yes or no" questions on foot sensation including pain, numbness and temperature sensitivity. A higher score (out of a maximum of 13 points) indicates more neuropathic symptoms

The questions were chosen from among those in the Neuropathy Screening Profile of Peter Dyck that showed the highest degree of specificity and sensitivity for diabetic neuropathy among normal subjects and those with a variety of neuromuscular disorders (Neurology, 36:1300-1308, 1986)

The second part of the MNSI is a brief physical assessment (completed by health professionals) involving
1) inspection of the feet for deformities, dry skin, hair or nail abnormalities, callous or infection
2) semi-quantitative assessment of vibration sensation at the dorsum of the great toe
3) grading of ankle reflexes and
4) monofilament testing.
Patients screening positive on the clinical portion of the MNSI (greater than 2 points on a 10 point scale) are considered neuropathic and referred for further evaluation
