Diabetics Socks

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.

If you’re interested in trying out our products for yourself, get in touch with us to find the perfect graduated compression or cushioned socks for you.

Diane's TXG Sock Feedback

"They are great, stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I will always wear them now."

 

"I've been doing an Alpine tramp over Cascade Saddle in Aspiring National Park & I wore the TXG compression socks. They are great. Stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I endured no lactose build up in my calf muscles despite the very steep ascent and descent. I will always wear them now and have recommended them to my tramping friends."

Reena's TXG Sock Feedback

"After a long shift, my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore."

 

"After me being on my feet for 24 hours and wearing the TXG compression socks for that length of time; my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore. I wasn’t as physically tired either as I usually would be after working a 12-hour shift at the hospital. The socks are wonderful and far exceeded my expectations."

Aroha's feedback on her TXG sleeves

"I love my arm and calf sleeves, they help me at hockey"

 

"I purchased some arm sleeves and calf sleeves and love them. Trialled them out last week during my many games of hockey and at an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament to see if they’ll help me at my next hockey tournament and I can safely say yes, I especially love the arm sleeves keeping my forearms from tightening which is so important when dribbling. They also help at the gym during any arm work where I grip tightly and my forearms tighten. Usually, I would fatigue and be forced to stop, but I get far more out of my arms."

Paula's feedback on her TXG socks

"I am able to stand longer during the day and I am less tired at the end of the day."

 

"Before I started wearing them I would notice that I had a varicose vein that would stand out on my lower leg. I wear my socks all day and at the end of the day when I take them off, there is no vein standing out on my leg. The spider veins are still there but even those are less prominent too I am able to stand longer during the day as well. They are probably one of the best things I have bought."
