TMT and ECG
TMT (Treadmill Test) and ECG (Electrocardiogram) are commonly used screening tools for cardiac disease in patients with diabetes. Diabetes is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and patients with diabetes are more likely to develop heart disease than those without diabetes. Therefore, regular screening for cardiac disease is essential for patients with diabetes to prevent complications and ensure early intervention. The TMT test is a non-invasive test that evaluates the heart's response to physical exertion. During the test, the patient walks on a treadmill while their heart rate, blood pressure, and ECG are monitored.
The test can help identify any abnormalities in the heart's electrical activity, such as arrhythmias or ischemia, that may indicate the presence of heart disease. At Virat Diabetes and Endocrine Hospital, TMT and ECG tests are routinely performed on patients with diabetes to screen for cardiac disease. The Hospital's healthcare professionals work together to interpret test results and provide patients with appropriate treatment and management plans. By providing regular cardiac screening for diabetes patients, the hospital is helping to prevent complications and improve patients' overall health and quality of life.
