Abstract

Objective: Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterized by sensory and motor symptoms especially in legs that often occur during rest. Although etiology is not known precisely, it can also occur secondary to diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency of RLS in diabetic patients and to investigate related factors.
