Circulation Tests

Another thing that we can measure and that your doctor might measure is your circulation. Circulation can start with the test of your pulses and he or she may check your foot pulses. There are two main foot pulses: one on the top and one on the side that goes down to the bottom. Those are both checked periodically in a diabetic foot exam. Those can be checked every few months or even once a year by your general doctor, your nurse practitioner, or indeed your foot specialist - your podiatrist.
