Having trouble drifting off when your head hits the pillow? The problem might be with your feet.
When our lower extremities get cold, our blood circulation drops. When we warm our feet, we send a signal to our brain that it’s time for sleep.
One of the easiest ways to keep our feet warm, of course, is by sleeping while wearing socks, such as our thermal diabetic socks.
It’s the easiest and safest way to keep warm, as methods such as hot water bottles, heating pads or electric blankets can lead you to become overheated or cause burns.
This is especially important for people with diabetes, as you might have less sensitivity in your feet and not notice when you’ve sustained a burn.
