Sweating too much or too little may just seem like an inconvenience, but it could be a sign of sudomotor neuropathy, a problem with the nerves in control of your sweat glands and body temperature regulation. If your feet or other areas of the body suffer from abnormal perspiration (sweating excessively or not sweating at all), it becomes much harder for your body to naturally regulate its temperature.

Our Milwaukee area podiatrists have the knowledge, experience, and equipment needed to test for sudomotor neuropathy. If you’re experiencing particularly sweaty feet, or your torso is perspiring excessively and your extremities are not sweating at all, meet with our specialists to discuss the problem and undergo sudomotor neuropathy testing.

An added benefit of sudomotor neuropathy testing is its ability to detect warning signs of other health problems. Our doctors sometimes find signs of anxiety and heart issues based on the results of this test. If we notice results indicating you may have these conditions, we will refer you to specialists for more testing. Our sudomotor neuropathy tests help avoid misdiagnosing diseases and get you the right treatment.

Sudomotor testing, such as Quantitative Sudomotor Autonomic/Axon Reflex Testing (QSART) and thermoregulatory sweat tests (TST), assesses how much sweat is produced and how well the sudomotor nerves are functioning. Talk to our foot specialists about autonomic testing.
