Diabetic socks are stockings designed with flat seams, or no seams, so there aren't any pressure points on the foot. They typically have a cushioned sole for added protection, and the fabric has been treated to reduce moisture and bacterial growth.
People with diabetes need to take good care of their feet. Elevated blood sugar levels make a person more prone to foot ulcers. A blister or ulcer can have disasterous consequences. Feet must be kept dry to minimize friction, bacteria, and fungal growth. Friction from a seam or pressure point inside a shoe can result in a blister. All of our diabetic socks have either flat toe seams or no seams at all. Fabric choices include synthetic and natural fiber blends.
Diabetic socks are available with light compression, or with no compression. Compression helps reduce edema or swelling. Whether or not you wear a compression stocking is best discussed with your doctor or health care provider.
Which ever diabetic sock you choose remember to check the size chart for that specific sock. We want your sock to fit perfectly. That's why Bright Life Direct has a 30-day no questions asked guarantee.
