Diabetic Socks for Women and Men
The three most important features of diabetic socks for women and men are fit, quality, and comfort.
A diagnosis of diabetes does not mean an active lifestyle needs to be curtailed. However, exercise is an important part of managing the disease. Along with quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption, regular physical activity can go a long way in reducing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, the number one cause of foot injuries that can lead to amputation if not treated early. As a result, it is recommended that people with diabetes wear diabetic socks. This is Mainly because wearing diabetic socks protects the feet from cuts, cracks, and blisters.
Diabetics Socks are not only for Diabetics!
The material used to knit diabetic socks for men and women wicks away moisture from the foot to allow sweat to evaporate. As a result lowering the risk of fungal infections, as well as preventing odor. Furthermore, a dry foot is protected from blisters, which can lead to more serious wounds, if not treated may result in amputation of the toes.
Our diabetic socks for men and women are constructed without seams in the toe area, reducing the risk of rubbing. The soft yarns cushion the ball and heel of the foot, and the construction of the ankle and calf have just the right amount of elasticity to keep them up without binding or cutting off the flow of blood to the foot.
Changing your diabetic socks often is important for foot health, and having a good supply on hand means clean socks are always at hand. That is why we recommend that they should be machine washed in a separate mesh undergarment bag, and dried at low heat, or hung outdoors, as we know sunlight is the best disinfectant. A sweater comb or shaver can be used to remove pills that could irritate tender feet.
