Start detecting Peripheral Small Fiber Neuropathy in your patients.
Sudopath is a device that measures sudomotor function which is controlled by a division of the sympathetic system, and it is related to nerve fibers (post sympathetic cholinergic fibers or C-fibers) controlling the activity of the sweat glands.
Sudomotor dysfunction is defined as a decreased sudomotor response. Sudomotor dysfunction has been found in diabetic patients, but it has also been found in different diseases and/or medication side effects such as:
- Cancer Treatment
- Antihypertensive Treatment ( in particular Beta and Alpha blockers and calcium antagonists)
- Metformin Treatment
- Vitamin Deficiency
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
- Kidney and Liver Diseases
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome
The Sudomotor test evaluates autonomic function, and it is performed in a clinical setting to evaluate and document neuropathic disturbances that may be associated with pain.
Examples of Sudomotor testing include:
- The quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test (QSART)
- Thermoregulatory sweat test (TST)
- Sympathetic skin responses
- Silastic sweat imprints are tests of sympathetic cholinergic sudomotor function
There exists over 60 years of data supporting the use of sudomotor testing in clinical practice, and the Sudomotor testing clinical data suggest it may be the most sensitive means to detect peripheral small fiber neuropathy.
