What is the TM Flow Exam?

The TM Flow Exam is a non-invasive, painless test that measures how well the sweat glands are working. This tiny device is placed on a patient’s finger and measures how much sweat is produced in response to heat. The results can be used to determine whether or not you have diabetic neuropathy.

It can be done in under 15 minutes, either in office or during routine physical exams.

How does the TM Flow Exam differ from otherDiabetic Neuropathy tests?

The TM Flow Exam is the only test that can be used to diagnose and treat diabetic neuropathy. This is because it measures a specific type of nerve pain called meralgia paresthetica. Meralgia paresthetica is an often overlooked symptom of diabetic neuropathy, and it’s important to know that you have it so you can begin treatment right away.

The TM Flow exam uses advanced technology to measure your body’s response to electrical current applied through electrodes placed on your skin (the same as tingling sensation experienced in some people when they are touched). The test takes about 20 minutes and involves no needles or injections, just electrodes attached to your legs that feel like something gently tapping them once a second for five seconds at a time.
