Testing for sudomotor dysfunction

Diabetes is a complex condition that often causes a variety of complications, one of them being autonomic neuropathy (or autonomic dysfunction). From the digestive system to heart and blood vessels, autonomic neuropathy affects numerous body systems all at once. It’s important your practice is prepared to diagnose and treat the wide range of symptoms that patients with this condition can experience.

Sudomotor dysfunction refers to the symptom of diabetic autonomic neuropathy that affects a person’s sweat glands. Patients experiencing sudomotor dysfunction might sweat excessively, especially after eating even non-spicy foods and at night. Sudomotor dysfunction also causes patients to not sweat at all, even when it’s extremely hot outside. Sweat, of course, is needed to keep the body cool.

To diagnose sudomotor dysfuntion, along with other common features of diabetic autonomic neuropathy, your practice should invest in equipment that provides a precise evaluation of sweat gland function. The SudoCheck Sudomotor Testing device is a new method that tests the electrochemical reaction between electrodes and the chloride of stimulated sweat glands, which allows your staff to discover information that otherwise would go undetected. It’s backed by 30 years of documented medical studies and features a variety of benefits, including Sympathetic Skin Response and Body Composition Analyzer.
