SUDOSCAN applications

SUDOSCAN has shown to be a sensitive tool to detect neuropathy in patients with DM

NIS-LL: Neuropathy Impairment Score within the Lower Limbs DM: Diabetes Mellitus ESC: Electrochemical Sweat Conductance (SUDOSCAN)
NIS-LL: Neuropathy Impairment Score within the Lower Limbs
DM: Diabetes Mellitus
ESC: Electrochemical Sweat Conductance (SUDOSCAN)

SUDOSCAN has also shown to be a good tool to evaluate the treatment efficacy.

Cardiovascular  autonomic  neuropathy  (CAN)  is  a  common  but  often  overlooked  complication  of  diabetes. Studies have shown that SUDOSCAN my may be used for early screening of CAN in everyday  clinical  practice  before  resorting  to  the  more  sophisticated  and  specific,  but  ultimately  more  time-consuming,  Ewing  tests.

Patients with neuropathy had significantly lower ESC scores than healthy controls

ESC: Electrochemical Sweat Conductance

SUDOSCAN has shown to had a diagnostic performance similar to accepted diagnostic tools for small fiber neuropathy (IENFD and QSART).
