What makes diabetic socks special? How do they help diabetic foot care?
Diabetic socks are designed to reduce pressure on swollen feet, ankles, and sensitive legs by minimizing constriction. Socks that maintain their shape and ability to absorb moisture are preferable and are seen with materials with a blend of cotton and polyester. Manufactures will soon be coming out with cushioned and low-abrasion potential socks to use in patients with diabetic neuropathy.
