Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) often co-exist with vascular insufficiency and are the major cause of gangrene and amputation in people with diabetes. Risk of developing diabetic foot ulcers is greatly increased by reduced sensation and blood perfusion.

What is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy?

DPN is one of the most common and serious complications that impact a significant number of patients with diabetes. The reported prevalence of diabetic peripheral neuropathy ranges from 16% to as high as 66% and it is believed to increase with the duration of diabetes and poor glucose control. Diabetic Foot Ulcers also develop as the direct result of DPN. Lack of sensation due to nerve damage, creation of pressure points on foot, undetected and untreated scrapes and cuts may lead to devastating outcomes like ulcerations and eventually amputations.


Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy


Depending on the nerves affected by diabetic peripheral neuropathy, you may experience a wide range of symptoms. Some of the common symptoms include pain, numbness, muscle weakness, body balance issues and tingling, pins and needles sensations in legs, feet and hands.

Diagnosis of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

Doctors will first conduct a physical examination of your condition, assess existing symptoms and understand complete medical history. For further investigation, Diabetic Foot Screening will be done using the following methods:

01.
Touch pressure sensation

It is used to check sensation at specific points on the feet, and are marked accordingly on the diagram for assessment.

02.
Test for Vibration Loss

The patient is first given a demo on a bony prominence of the wrist and then it is tested on the feet using a 128 – Hz tuning fork in this test.

03.
Measure Vibration Perception Threshold (VPT)

The VPT is measured by a sensitometer that uses voltage on the soles of the patient.

04.
Test temperature sensation

Temperature is measured for understanding sensation on the feet.

05.
Pain sensation

Stinging, burning and aching pain is evaluated using a TSS score.

06.

07.
Vibrotherm (Vibration, Pressure, Thermal- Diabetes Neuropathy)

Diabetes often damages peripheral nerve endings so are checked for numbness at their extremities.

08.
Vascular Doppler – Diabetes Vasculopathy

It is used to detect the blood flow through the blood vessels. An Ankle Brachial pressure Index (ABI) is done to measure blood pressure at ankle as well as at the arm.

09.
Podia scan

Podia scan identifies structural defects and the high pressure points on the foot (sole) and helps to resolve abnormal foot positions to avoid non-healing foot ulcers.
