We get constant emails regarding recommendations on risk assessment and how to perform a “Comprehensive Diabetic Foot Exam” . To that end, we post the American Diabetes Association’s comprehensive diabetic foot exam published in Diabetes Care for free download here. The exam form can be found here.
We also post some video. Here we provide methods for use of the Semmes Weinstein 10 gram monofilament, the biothesiometer (Vibration Perception Threshold), and a Doppler and blood pressure cuff for performing the Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) measurement. Enjoy.
