Monofilament Test

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]It is truly amazing that a small plastic wire is the most important tool foot doctors have for diagnosing a disorder common to many people with diabetes – the inability to feel foot pain, also known as loss of protective sensation for pain (LOPS) or, in medical jargon, diabetic sensory neuropathy.

Using this wire – called a monofilament testing device – is the most accepted medical practice worldwide, or the “gold standard,” for diagnosing diabetic sensory neuropathy.[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI1NjAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzMTUlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGbUxFdHpqOWd6TE0lM0ZyZWwlM0QwJTIyJTIwZnJhbWVib3JkZXIlM0QlMjIwJTIyJTIwYWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTNFJTNDJTJGaWZyYW1lJTNF[/vc_raw_html][vc_column_text]

People with diabetes should have this test as part of their annual physical check up. Why? Because the only thing worse than not being able to feel pain is not knowing that you have this problem. If you should stub your toe, step on a piece of glass, have a pebble in your shoe, or a seam in your sock that is rubbing against your foot, and you can’t feel it, your foot may be suffering and you wouldn’t even know it!

What’s more, this exam is so easy to accomplish, that you can do it yourself or with the help of a caregiver. Just follow the diagram and instructions in the Monofilament Testing PDF on this page.
