At first, you have to be thinking: what does a foot and ankle medical practice have to do with diabetes?
The two couldn’t seem farther apart.
But if you’re a diabetic, have a family member who is, or know someone else with diabetes, the connection’s obvious.
Diabetics often suffer from a nerve disorder called “small fiber neuropathy.” This condition causes tingling, numbness, and pain in diabetic’s feet.
So there’s the connection.
The Hyperion SmartSKAN Allows Us to Detect Diabetic Neuropathy Early On
Once nerve damage affects any of your peripheral areas – arms, hands, legs, or feet, it’s called “Diabetic Neuropathy.” And for diabetics, it’s a common condition, even when they do a good job of controlling their blood sugar. Some statistics say this condition affects up to 50% of all diabetics.
SmartSKAN allows us to do a precise measurement of the damage done to your small autonomic nerve fibers. SmartSKAN can find this damage early on in the process, before you even have a strong awareness of what’s going on.
So, this allows you to seek treatment, which is almost always most effective when you first discover this condition. And you can prevent a certain extent of long-term damage too.
