Why do Diabetics need to wear Socks?
Diabetes affect multiple body systems including the feet. Diabetic patients may suffer from a condition called neuropathy which manifests as a loss of sensation, reduced blood circulation and delayed wound healing. Neuropathic patients may not be able to perceive pain, pressure or variations in temperature. Because of this, small scratches or abrasions may go unnoticed. A minor wound that is not attended to may be infected, resulting in an ulcer and eventually amputation. Additionally, because of poor blood circulation, injuries in diabetic patients take longer to heal.
Progaiit Socks are also non-constricting and do not impede blood circulation.
