SUDOSCAN IN DIABETOLOGY:
DIABETIC FOOT RISK DETECTION

A multi-center study (3 hospitals: Bichat, La Pitié Salpêtrière, Bégin) completed in France established the link between the grade of diabetic foot risk and the decrease of Electrochemical Skin Conductance (ESC) measured with SUDOSCAN.
A poster has been presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) conference in September 2019 (1).

SUDOSCAN IN DIABETOLOGY: DIABETIC FOOT RISK DETECTION

Percentage of neuropathies and severe neuropathies in patients with diabetes classified according to the gradation of diabetic foot risk.

Moreover, in a recent report, the French health department (HAS, Haute Autorité de Santé) has recommended that patients with diabetes be referred to podiatrists for prevention of foot lesions starting as soon as grade 1 foot risk (2).
