How do you test for diabetic ulcers?

Your doctor may do something called a circulation test, where he or she will evaluate your foot pulses. Your doctor may also assess your skin, searching for a wound or anything out of the ordinary. Your doctor may also check your sensation using different tools such as a tuning fork. Doppler tests are used to listen to the sounds of blood circulating in your foot.
