Why Diabetic Socks

People diagnosed with diabetes have many troubles with their feet.  The loss of feeling and senses make it hard to tell whether or not a blister or sore has developed. If sores go untreated, they can later become ulcers. The complications only get worse from there.

Diabetic socks are seamless and are designed to reduce irritation. Protection against irritation is important and can prevent sores and blisters from forming. The idea behind diabetic socks is to increase the health of your legs and feet.

Why Diabetic Shoes?

Why do diabetics have special shoes? People always ask me this question and the answer is simple: because the foot is especially affected by diabetes affecting nerve damage and circulation. Because of this nerve damage, the foot can be damaged with sores, blisters, and even foot ulcers and you may not even know it. What makes this process even more troublesome is the fact that the foot cannot heal so easily because of the lack of circulation.

Diabetic shoes remedy the problems because diabetic shoes are designed for a soft, comfy, snug fit. Diabetes shoes also protect your feet from dirt, debris, and the elements so you can be sure that you are protected. According to FootPhysicians.com, diabetic shoes are made of special protective inserts and soft shoe materials to decrease the chance of foot sores (ulcers) which can be caused by friction and pressure.

Diabetic Shoes

So many times have I gotten the question of what exactly diabetic shoes are. Diabetic shoes are specially designed for those diagnosed with diabetes. The shoes offer support against the circulation problems that come with diabetes. They are extremely soft and supportive to alleviate any pain or breaking of the skin on the foot.
