Diabetes can cause neuropathy (nerve damage), which reduces feeling in your feet. This makes you less likely to feel the early warning signs of foot problems. Decreased circulation reduces the ability to heal and fight off infection. These two conditions significantly increase the likelihood of foot complications, infection, and ulceration.
Anyone with Diabetic Neuropathy, poor circulation, high risk of infection or nerve damage can benefit from diabetic socks and our shoes. Medicare patients who qualify are eligible for one pair of shoes and three sets of custom insoles per year - at no out of pocket cost to them. Additionally, most private insurance companies will cover the same benefits as Medicare.
