Diabetic socks are uniquely designed for people with diabetes to help keep feet dry, reduce the risk of foot injuries, and improve blood circulation. People with diabetes have sensitive feet, and most people suffer from diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease. Diabetic stockings have special designs and features and are made from high-quality material that safeguards sensitive diabetic feet from developing additional problems. These socks control moisture, provide cushioning support, and help keep feet comfortable and healthy.

These are snug-fitting socks that promote blood flow. Compression socks should not be so tight that they impair circulation. But, because they are made with a bit more elastic than other socks, compression socks encourage the blood to flow by gently squeezing the leg.
Even though they're known to improve circulation by increasing blood flow, they aren't meant to be worn to bed. They might move blood flow away from your feet and may block blood flow when you're lying down.

Diabetic socks are designed to minimize foot injuries and keep feet dry and warm.
Some people with diabetic neuropathy experience dry and cracked skin on the feet. Socks with a soft material may be more comfortable.
If your diabetic neuropathy is advanced to the point that there is no feeling in your feet, it’s important to wear socks that fit perfectly so they won’t bunch up and rub against your skin. Seamless socks are helpful in preventing injuries.
Choosing the right socks sometimes means balancing a good fit with a pair that will not restrict the blood circulation. If you have poor circulation because of your diabetes, avoid socks that are too tight or that have elastic at the top that may dig into your leg.
Features that are desirable in diabetic socks are that they should be:
Compression hosiery must be replaced every 3-6 months. The elastic and compression naturally break down with wearing and washing over time. If you stop feeling the compression it’s time to replace your support hose.
It is important that the compression products should fit properly to get the benefits of the compression. It is recommended that you read through directions on how to measure and sizing tips. Write down measurements and follow the sizing charts provided with each product.
The standard wear life of diabetic socks depend on many factors including how often they are worn, activity level while wearing, and the care provided to the socks.
Diabetic Socks are made with very light compression in the top of the sock so that the sock to stays in place, without restricting the blood flow in your legs. The toe seams in daibetic socks are either non-existent or minimized to lessen the possibility of abrasion. All socks have Nylon on the exterior to further reduce friction while walking.
No. Non-elastic non-binding diabetic socks are a safe choice for diabetics. Restricting circulation is always a concern for diabetics, but doctors agree that uniform compression actually promotes blood flow.
Diabetic socks won't slip, bunch, or create blisters and discomfort. Diabetic socks are less prone to wrinkling on the bottom of the foot reducing the development of ridges or pressure points on the bottom of the foot.
