If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you are probably familiar with the importance of proper foot care. Keeping your feet clean, healthy and protected is an essential part of not only your foot health, but your overall health.
Diabetes can cause two major foot problems: diabetic neuropathy, where you cannot feel heat, cold or pain in your feet, and peripheral vascular diabetes, which causes poor blood flow and prevents cuts and sores from healing properly.
Diabetic socks are an essential part of your foot care routine. They help protect your feet, prevent blisters or rubbing, keep your feet clean, and can help regulate temperature. Plus, most diabetic socks are either 100% seamless or made with non-irritating seams, have a non-binding top band and a loose fitting design so you will be comfortable all day. Some diabetic socks can even help improve circulation and relieve tired, achy legs! Take care of your feet and your health by wearing diabetic socks!
