Socks for Diabetics

Socks for Diabetics

194 million people around the world currently live with diabetes, a number expected to grow to 333 million by 2025.
Clearly, diabetes is a problem that's not going away.

Foot problems are a very real concern for people with diabetes. Diabetes can affect the lower legs and feet in two significant ways:

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
A disease of the large blood vessels that can affect the arms, legs, and feet. PVD may occur when major blood vessels in these areas are blocked and do not receive enough blood. The signs of PVD are aching pains and slow healing foot sores.

Peripheral Neuropathy
Nerve damage that affects the hands, legs, and feet. Peripheral neuropathy causes pain, numbness, or a tingling feeling in the extremities. About 60-70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nerve damage.

Mild Compression - 8-15mmHg

  • Those suffering from tired, aching legs

This compression level is still more than twice the support of ordinary department store support stockings.
