1000 Mile Diabetic Socks
The development of feet conditions such as blisters and even ulcers are more likely to affect those who suffer from diabetes. In fact, 10% of diabetics are likely to suffer from a foot ulcer. Diabetics have enough things to keep track of when it comes to monitoring their condition. The last thing they need is to have to pay special attention to their feet as well.
With the 1000 Mile Diabetic Socks, these worries are put to rest. The improved comfort helps to increase circulation and protect the feet against blisters, helping to minimise the risk and be one less problem to worry about. The socks are designed to help regulate the temperature of the feet while protecting against abrasions or rubs.
Who Can Benefit from the 1000 Mile Diabetic Socks?
The socks are specially designed for those who suffer from diabetes as the added protection is designed to combat problems to which they are particularly prone.
The features of the socks, however, means they are suitable for those who suffer from circulatory problems in the feet as both the fit, the shape and the material used in the socks focus on improving circulation.
