Diabetes mellitus creates high levels of glucose in the blood that over time damages nerves and blood vessels. As a result, diabetes can affect all parts of the body. In particular, legs and feet are often the most affected, which leads to poor blood flow and circulation in the legs. Diabetics that have damaged nerves may become unaware of the blisters, bruises, open sores, or cuts on their feet. With some diabetics, cuts can develop into severe foot ulcers if they are not properly treated in a timely manner. It is more difficult for diabetics to deal with these problems because healing wounds take longer for them. The feet also become more desensitized to cold or warmth. This why it is vital for diabetics to visually and physically inspect their feet each day. Not only that, it is also a good idea for diabetics to maintain healthy feet. One way to do this is to wear protective diabetic shoes and socks to defend against further foot complications.
Our diabetic knee socks are unique hosiery that secures the feet against discomfort and offers a wide array of health benefits. A lot of diabetics have sensitive legs and feet, and our socks offer protection for this sensitivity. They minimize friction and prevent blisters, sores, infections, and other injuries. Socks for diabetics also boost the flow of oxygen to the legs to prevent foot and ankle swelling. In addition, these socks keep the feet drier to prevent infections.
Over the calf diabetic socks maximizes comfort with a better fit, extra support, non-irritating seams, and roomy tops. A close fit is made possible by a defined heel and toe. This allows the socks to stay up on the legs where they should be. There are no worries about our socks being too loose, falling down, or causing blisters from loose material. The bottoms of the socks also offers a thicker layer of cushion without adding size to the feet. Along with a nice pair of shoes, it is another way to protect the feet. Next, the seams are carefully made to be flat and almost seamless to the touch. It is crucial to choose socks that has sufficient space for your toes to wiggle. Flat seams puts less pressure and minimizes irritation for the toes, which is where sores are quite common. Lastly, relaxed tops puts no additional pressure on the legs to allow proper circulation in the legs. Say goodbye to sock marks from the elastic bands. Another benefit from better circulation is swollen ankles and feet are alleviated and get a chance to recuperate.
Damp feet creates more friction and rubs against the skin, which can result in skin irritation, blisters, and open sores. When broken skin is exposed to bacteria from constant wet feet, infection is the likely outcome. Our socks help alleviate this problem by using a softer blend of cotton and nylon. Socks manufactured with natural fabrics allow for superior air circulation. The nylon used helps with repelling moisture. This blend of materials minimizes friction and soaks moisture up and dries it quicker by wicking it up to the surface. The bacteria that causes odors and infections will be effectively controlled.
While our socks are made for diabetics, they do not sacrifice on style. These knee high diabetic socks are perfectly suitable for wearing as dress socks. Our long diabetic socks are made to wear right below the knees. Like proper dress socks, no skin will show when sitting down. They are resistant to sagging down and are great for the added warmth and support. Over the calf diabetic socks can be worn as casual wear as well as for physical activity.
The most crucial thing for diabetics to bear in mind is to continue caring for their feet and try to protect them from injury. Remember that many diabetics experience reduced sensation in their feet, so diabetic knee socks will help to ease the discomfort of swelling, chronic edema, and toe pain. Pick socks that do not limit leg circulation, bunch or sag. Your feet will greatly appreciate this. As well as wearing proper socks and shoes, diabetics should visit their doctor regularly to make sure that their feet are in good health.
