There are a variety of different tests that your doctor may perform and recommend, depending on what illnesses you may be dealing with and what symptoms you are displaying. In order to detect heart disease and reduce your risk of suffering from a heart condition, your doctor provides cardiovascular testing in office. This measures different types of information about the heart to ensure that it’s functioning properly and there’s no damage that needs to be treated. With this, your doctor will also check your central aortic blood pressure and test the blood flow in the lower extremities.

If you’re at risk for diabetes, your doctor will test your insulin resistance to find out if you have prediabetes. This can help increase your chances of being able to properly treat it and make any lifestyle changes necessary to avoid diabetes. Along with checking for diabetes, your doctor will test for peripheral neuropathy. This is commonly associated with diabetes and should be addressed so that you can properly inspect your body and learn to adapt.
