Diabetes is a leading cause of peripheral neuropathy.
Diabetes is a leading cause of peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy refers to damage to the nerves that move and feel in your body—and it’s a common complication of diabetes.
The symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy include:
- Numbness, tingling and pain
- Burning or stabbing sensations in your hands and feet (or both)
St Louis TM Flow & Sudomotor Testing has a number of methods of diagnosing diabetic neuropathy.
- TM Flow Testing
This method of diagnosing diabetic neuropathy uses a specialized machine called the thermal sensory analyzer, which measures how quickly and accurately you can detect hot and cold stimuli. This method is not invasive, and it only requires that you sit in a chair while the test is administered.
- Sudomotor Testing
Sudomotor testing is also known as sweat testing or autonomic function testing, and it measures your body’s response to anxiety and stress by measuring the amount of sweat on your hands. For this test, you must wear special bands around each wrist for several hours before going through an exercise routine that consists of hand wringing exercises done in rapid succession (often 20 times). The results are then measured by comparing them to those taken after resting overnight with no bandages on.
