Why test sudomotor function?

A sudomotor function test is a quick and reliable way of identifying certain types of neuropathies. The presently available tests detect only 50-60% of neuropathies. This test helps the clinician to identify small fiber neuropathies and improve diagnostic accuracy.

What information does SUDOSCAN provide?

SUDOSCAN gives you the information about the small fiber nerve functions. In a SUDOSCAN test, electrical conductance of the hands and feet are measured. Test results with high conductance means normal sweat function whereas low conductance indicates peripheral or autonomic neuropathy.

What is SUDOSCAN?

SUDOSCAN is an approved device used to test the sudomotor function and test for Small fiber neuropathies. The test is non-invasive, accurate and fast. No patient preparation or fasting is needed and outcome of the test is available within 3 minutes.

Who should get tested with a SUDOSCAN?

A SUDOSCAN test is very useful if you have burning feet, an undiagnosed neuropathy or for periodic assessment of patients with a known neuropathy. It is effective in identifying autonomic neuropathy caused by diabetes and other diseases.
