This exam is necessary to identify conditions of the foot that are at risk of developing ulcers or infections which could lead to serious complications.

Why is Diabetic Foot Screening Important?

Diabetic foot screening helps detect these problems early, allowing for prompt treatment and reducing the risk of serious complications, such as ulceration and amputation. Regular diabetic foot screenings can also help individuals with diabetes to maintain good foot health and prevent future foot health problems.

Lower Limb Vascular Exam

A Lower Limb Vascular exam can be performed specifically for individuals with diabetes to assess the health of the blood vessels in their lower extremities. The exam is important for people with diabetes because they have an increased risk of developing peripheral vascular disease, which is a condition that affects the blood vessels and can lead to reduced blood flow in the legs, ankles, and feet.

This lower limb assessment consists of 10 tests that comprehensively evaluate lower limb health.

The tests, which include Doppler (dorsal, tibial, femoral, and popliteal), vibration, sensitivity, percussion, moisture, ABI, TBI, thermology, touch, and pressure, are designed to provide a comprehensive evaluation of lower limb health. The aim of the assessment is to identify any potential signs of disease progression and provide a clear understanding of current health status.
