We call them diabetic socks for men and women, but these special socks are recommended for people suffering from the effects of not only diabetes, but circulatory problems, edema, and neuropathy as well. For most of us socks get little thought, other than is a there a clean pair in our dresser each morning. Due to the construction and the quality of our diabetic socks for men and women, one might very well call these the Cadillac of socks.
The open weave construction enables easy foot breathability. It wicks moisture away, which keeps feet dry and protected. The insulating qualities of ultra-soft upper calf socks remain cool in heat and warm during the cold. Wearing suitable diabetic socks for men and women plays a significant part in protecting your feet. The unique features of diabetic socks are not present in regular socks; hence, our socks prevent additional problems while keeping your feet healthy and comfortable.
Are these socks only for people with Diabetes?
A diagnosis of diabetes is all about insulin and blood sugars, and we may well ask what do special socks have to do with finger pricking and glucose monitoring? It turns out, not much. The diabetic socks for men and women are for control and treatment of nerve damage, particularly the tiny nerves furthest away from the heart. This damage to small nerve fibers results in loss of pain and thermal ( hot and cold) sensation.
You could walk around all day with a splinter in your foot and never feel a thing. Nerves and blood vessels in the feet are where blood flow (circulation) can become an issue. Due to diabetic nerve damage a condition known as peripheral neuropathy causes a lack of feeling in the feet. This can lead to cuts, bruises, and blisters, all leading to deeper infections such as ulcers. If left untreated this can end in amputation.
