Socks for Diabetics
Diabetic socks are an important tool in diabetic foot care. Diabetes can cause two major foot problems: diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease. Diabetic neuropathy results in the suffered being unable to feel heat, cold or pain in their feet. They may also be unable to feel cuts which can become infected. Nerve damage can also make muscles weak, causing the foot to not align properly, resulting in stress. Peripheral vascular disease affects the flow of blood. Poor blood flow can cause sores or cuts to take longer to heal. Poor circulation in the foot can put an individual at a higher risk of developing foot ulcers or gangrene.
Fortunately, diabetic socks can be used as part of a diabetic foot care regimen. Many diabetic socks are designed to only lightly compress the foot, ankle and leg to improve circulation and prevent problems from occurring. Diabetics should not settle for cheaply made socks that do not provide the right type of support and cushioning.
