Diabetic shoes and inserts

Proper diabetic foot care can help you stay active and engaged in your daily activities. Your mobility and quality of life depend upon close monitoring of your feet, proper shoes, lifestyle choices, and a commitment to your treatment plan.

Over 30 million people in the United States are impacted by diabetes and a large percentage of them experience medical issues with their feet. Complications can include nerve damage, loss of feeling and poor circulation, skin changes, calluses, and foot ulcers, and they can present significant challenges to proper care.

Custom inserts and special shoes can be prescribed to take pressure off specific areas of your foot where you struggle to heal and help prevent painful pressure points, blisters, and sores from developing. They are made to fit your feet and are fabricated from breathable materials designed to cushion while providing extra support to the ankle, arch, and heel.

Importance of Proper Care

Proper care can help you avoid problems that may lead to amputation. Practice good hygiene habits by cleansing and thoroughly inspecting your feet and wearing clean socks each day. If you are having trouble healing a wound on your foot, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician or podiatrist to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.

If you are having trouble with your feet and walking then more than likely you are wearing the wrong shoes for your feet. It is extremely important to take care of your feet if you are diabetic. This is why custom diabetic shoes and inserts are important.
