Objective neurovascular monitoring in feet of Type 2 diabetes patients
If you have diabetes, you need to have the nerves and blood circulation in your feet tested every year to see if any changes have happened. There are new machines that hope to improve the way these tests are done, but they have not had a lot of testing. This project is going to test how well these machines work, and compare what they find with what is commonly done at the yearly diabetic checks.
Who can be involved?
- A person between 18-65 years with type 2 diabetes. You must have no wounds or ulcers and have no other causes of nerve or circulation damage apart from diabetes.
What happens to people taking part in this research?
You will be asked to attend a Solent podiatry clinic and have a diabetes foot check on the nerves and circulation using the common methods (monofilament and doppler). Then the new machines (DPN-Check and Medicap), will be used to repeat the same tests. You will also be asked about your height, weight, age, and any medications you take.
