Proper footwear may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about diabetes, but choosing the right pair of diabetic socks is essential if you’re one of the millions of people who have been diagnosed with the disease.
Diabetes can damage the nerves in your feet, leaving you with a loss of feeling. This loss of feeling could cause a foot injury to go unnoticed and get worse – it might even lead to an infection. And since diabetes can restrict blood flow to your feet, those injuries can take even more time to heal than normal.
Due to elevated blood sugar levels, diabetics are often susceptible to developing blisters and ulcers. That’s why compression socks for diabetics are designed with flat toe seams or no seams at all. This reduces friction and helps prevent blisters from becoming significantly larger problems. Our diabetic compression socks are also made with moisture wicking fabric, which makes them more breathable in order to prevent moisture build up and bacterial growth.
