Diabetic Shoes

Diabetes and Your Feet

One of the things we here the most from our diabetic patients is the importance of having proper footwear. With folks who are battling with diabetes and trying to maintain a normal lifestyle with the condition, good shoes and proper footwear are very important. But what exactly are diabetic shoes and why are they so important?

Diabetes causes nerve damage and reduced circulation that can be hazardous to your feet. Worsening of your peripheral nerves (Doctors call it “neuropathy.”) reduces sensation in your extremities, thus you may not feel it when you bruise your feet. Poor blood circulation can also make it difficult for foot injuries and infections to heal. That’s why even a small bump or cut can result in serious consequences if it goes without timely medical attention.
