Foot problems are a common side effect of diabetes stemming from neuropathy and vascular disease. What’s an insignificant problem for non-diabetics, can develop into something very serious for those with the condition. Seeing that only around 50% of diabetics are diagnosed, many aren't aware of the potential complications they could be facing. We recommend that you consult a medical professional so that they can inform you as to whether our diabetic socks could improve your symptoms or condition, starting today.

DIABETES EFFECTS ON YOUR FEET
A common side effect of diabetes is nerve damage or neuropathy due to poor circulation. This can be painful or result in loss of feeling. Numbness is dangerous as it enables other serious complications to develop, reducing your feet’s ability to recover from minor injuries or to fight off infections. If left unattended this can lead to gangrene and amputation.
To prevent this from occurring you need to stimulate blood flow in the legs and feet. Wearing diabetic socks while going about your daily business (and during exercise) can assist with this.
HOW OUR NZ DIABETICS SOCKS CAN HELP DIABETICS
Our diabetic socks keep feet clean and dry, with as little friction or irritation as possible. We’ve infused them with anti-bacterial fibres to enhance circulation, prevent infections from developing and speed up the recovery of existing wounds. Our socks will not stimulate the skin and cause inflammation or ulceration. We only use soft fabrics and seamless joins to avoid irritations or wounds caused by friction. These socks, therefore, have zero compression and excellent breathability.
Not all diabetics are suited to wearing compression socks. We recommend that if you are diabetic you seek advice from your doctor before wearing compression socks or stockings.
