Men's and Women's Diabetic Socks
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. Due to elevated blood sugar levels, diabetics are often susceptible to developing blisters and ulcers. That’s why compression socks for men and women who are diabetics are designed with flat toe seams or no seams at all.
Diabetes can cause two major foot problems: diabetic neuropathy, where the diabetic is unable to feel heat, cold, pain, or cuts on their feet, and peripheral vascular diabetes, which affects blood flow and prevents cuts and sores from healing properly. Diabetic socks can also prevent blood clots, and assist in relieving achy legs, which helps soothe foot-related discomfort.
