Diabetic neuropathy is a form of nerve damage that is common in diabetic patients. High blood sugar can weigh heavy on your nerves and cause some damage. The most affected nerves are those around the legs and feet.
Depending on the nerves affected, the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from numbness and pain around your legs and feet to upsets in your digestive system, urinary tract, heart, and blood vessels. Diabetic neuropathy is a serious condition that affects up to 50% of patients living with diabetes.
Foot care is an essential part of managing diabetic neuropathy. Part of this foot care is having on the right socks and shoes all the time. This tip is helpful even if you have never experienced problems with your feet, or you rarely walk. Putting on well-fitting shoes is necessary, but the most important element is neuropathy socks.
Neuropathy socks provide extra protection against injury. Complications from diabetes can result in reduced distribution of blood to your feet. As a result, injuries that result in sores may take longer to heal. You also suffer an increased risk of infections and other health issues. Neuropathy socks are well-knit textile devices that protect your feet from injury and reduce the effects of diabetes on your feet.
