Aster Medcity launches SUDOSCAN
Test results can be obtained within three minutes by using the novel technology.
Early detection is the key to controlling and preventing diabetes complications. Sudoscan helps in the early detection of the onset of Type 2 diabetes and any of its complications. It’s a simple non-invasive (non-surgical), painless and quick test for the early detection of neuropathic abnormalities. SUDOSCAN test can be completed within just three minutes. It checks the function of small nerves through sweat glands. Sweat function reflects the health of nerves that control heart rate, digestion, urination, respiratory rate, sexual function, blood functions that are generally impacted with diabetes.
People aged 35 years and above, having a family history of diabetes or smoking and drinking habits, engaged mainly in office work, leading a sedentary lifestyle and overweight, are advised to undergo the test. This helps to develop the right treatment plan.
SUDOSCAN was launched at Aster Medcity for the first time in Kerala. The approximate cost for this test is Rs 1500.
