Diabetic socks are socks designed specifically for people living with diabetes. Quite often, diabetic socks are designed without seams in order to reduce the chance of blistering.
In addition, these socks are also designed to control moisture in order to reduce the risk of fungal infection. Further, extra cushioning is added to prevent foot ulcers as good skincare and foot care is essential.
The ideal socks for people with diabetes will have the following features:
- Non-elasticated cuffs
- No prominent seams
- Keep in warmth (particularly for winter use)
- Allow feet to breathe and sweat to dry out (particularly for summer use)
