What To Expect With Your Diabetic Assessment

We test the productiveness of the following functions:

  • blood circulation
  • peripheral nervous system

We use a non-invasive method for testing your pedal pulses including the use of a vascular doppler in conjunction with the application of 10-gram monofilament when testing your nerves for sensation.

We also assess the state of your:

  • skin condition
  • bone and joint function

Once you have completed your assessment, you will be given both a short and long-term plan to reduce your risk of severe complications in the future

Be empowered with this knowledge so you can gain control and maintain a mobile quality of life.
