The TM Flow is a new diagnostic test that can help diagnose and monitor neuropathy, or nerve damage. Neuropathy can result from diabetes and other conditions, such as vitamin B12 deficiency or leprosy. In the past, diagnosing neuropathy was an inexact science because it relies on subjective reporting by patients.

New standards for diagnosing neuropathy.

The sudomotor testing is the gold standard for diagnosing neuropathy, but it’s not always available. However, in today’s world of health care, there are few things more important than diagnosing and treating a disease early on. With that in mind, let’s look at some ways to do just that.

  • Sudomotor testing is the only test that can diagnose a wide range of neuropathies:
  • autonomic (autonomic nervous system) – diabetes
  • neurological – spinal cord injuries including traumatic brain injury (TBI)

What is the TM Flow?

The TM Flow test measures sweat flow from the hands and feet, which will be used to diagnose neuropathy. This test is painless and non-invasive. It can be used to monitor progress in patients with neuropathy as well.

How does it work?

The patient’s hands or feet will be placed on a metal plate that has been cooled by dry ice; then he/she will wear an infrared light source while they are subjected to mild heat (around 90 degrees Fahrenheit). The metal plate then removes any excess moisture on the skin surface before sending it through an instrument called a “sweat generator” which sends out infrared light for about 20 minutes at a time (the amount of times depends on how many times per day you want him/her tested). The more infrared light absorbed means faster sweat rate; this means better circulation!

TM Flow and Reimbursement.

TM Flow is an easy-to-learn test that can be performed in the office or in the hospital. It is reimbursed by Medicare and most other insurance companies, making it an affordable option for pain clinics.

TM Flow is a comprehensive test for diagnosing neuropathy and understanding its severity. By incorporating large numbers of sensory fibers into one exam, TM Flow provides information about both quantitative (intensity) and qualitative (location) features of your symptoms.
