A word of caution when buying diabetic shoes

People who buy shoes for diabetes often experience loss of feeling in their feet. The result is often a shoe that fits too tight for the foot. A doctor can help you find the right pair to relieve pain. Even if you aren’t feeling pain in your foot now, the right pair of shoes can prevent problems in the future. Proper diabetic shoes should reduce pressure on your feet, relieve your foot from shock and tear during use, and limit the motion of your joints while walking. Limiting the motion of some joints make your foot more stable and functional while reducing any chance of swelling. Consult with your doctor if you haven’t already about the perfect shoes for you to ensure a comfortable and painless future!
