Screening for nerve damage and circulation with foot examinations
People with diabetes should have a foot examination at least once a year. Your feet will be looked at and you can expect to be tested for the feeling in your feet, including your sense of touch, hot and cold sensations and they may test for the circulation in your feet as well.
Screening for eye problems (Retinopathy)
Everyone with diabetes, who is 12 years old or over, should receive a retinal examination once a year. At the screening, you will have a photograph taken of your retina, to check how healthy it is.
Screening for cholesterol
Blood pressure screening
You will probably be familiar with blood pressure screening. The doctor or nurse should be able to let you know what the result is almost instantly. Whilst carrying out the test, they may also check your pulse.
Screening for kidney disease (Nephropathy)
One of the easier tests to carry out, you will be asked to provide a sample of your urine. The sample will be tested to see whether there is protein in the urine.
Other screening tests
Depending on your health and medical history, our physicians may check for other problems as well.
