Why Get Diabetic Shoes?

Diabetes is a disease that causes the pancreas to fail to produce enough insulin to increase the average glucose level in the body. People with diabetes show a tendency to have problems with their feet. Doctors, therefore, often recommend the use of diabetic footwear in these patients as proper foot care is required once you have identified foot problems.

Diabetic shoes are designed to avoid potential complications, such as infections, blisters, ulcers, etc., leading to more severe conditions. There are two conditions associated with diabetic foot. The first is Neuropathy, a condition that affects the legs of diabetic patients who feel numbness in the feet due to nerve damage. The second one is called peripheral vascular disease, which means tightening the arteries in the legs to prevent blood from flowing to the feet. Poor blood flow to the feet and toes can lead to diabetic foot pain. Diabetes shoes are intended to reduce this pain.

How Are Diabetic Shoes Different From Regular Shoes?

Diabetes shoes should be deeper than usual to include a custom inner sole for comfort and protection. Good ventilation or moisture-retaining equipment should be provided for diabetic footwear to keep germs away from the foot. It will be designed so that the weight of the shoes will be reduced to a minimum. Diabetic shoes provide excellent support for the arch, heel and ankle while controlling weight distribution so that painful pressure points are avoided as much as possible.

There should always be space for your toes. This space should be enough for the toes to fit inside the back of your shoes, and you should have enough space to twist your toes. Much diabetic footwear is available in a wide range of sizes to fit all types of feet. The width of the shoe should be the same as the ball of your foot for satisfaction. It will help if you look for shoes with more leather material and comfortable cushion soles and insoles.

How to Take Care of Diabetic Feet?

Caring for diabetic feet is vital as diabetes can be dangerous to your feet — even minor cuts can produce side effects. Diabetes causes nerve damage in the legs. Diabetes can also slow down blood flow to the feet, making it difficult to heal injuries or infection-resistant. Because of these problems, you may not see the outside of your shoe. As a result, you may have a blister or ulcer. This can lead to an infection or ulcer that can lead to amputation.

Follow these guidelines to avoid serious foot problems resulting in loss of a toe, foot or leg.

  • Examine your feet daily. Look for cuts, blisters, redness, swelling or problems with the nails. Use a magnifying glass to look down at your feet. Call your doctor if you see anything.
  • Wash your feet with mild warm water. It would be best to wash your feet daily to keep them clean.
  • Be gentle when washing your feet. Use a soft cloth to clean them. Dry by wiping or patting and dry gently between the toes.
  • Rub your feet but not between your toes. Use a moisturiser daily to prevent dry skin from being bitten or cracked. But do not get wet between the toes — which may promote fungal infections.
  • Cut the nails carefully. Cut them straight across and sew the edges. Do not cut your nails too short, as this can lead to standing toes.
  • Never carry corns or calluses on your own. There are no “bathroom surgeries” or medicated pads. Visit your doctor for appropriate treatment.
  • Wear clean, dry socks. Change them every day.
  • Consider socks made for people with diabetes. These socks have an extra cushion, have no stretch marks, are higher than the ankle and are made of fibres that remove moisture from the skin.
  • Wear socks to bed. If your feet get cold at night, wear socks and never use a heating pad or hot water bottle.
  • Take off your shoes and feel inside before dressing. You may not feel the stone or anything outside on your feet, so it is advised to always check your shoes properly before wearing them.
  • Keep your feet warm and dry. Do not let your feet get wet in the snow or the rain. Always wear warm shoes and socks in winter.
  • If your feet sweat a lot, antiperspirants on soles are the best way to help remove excessive sweat from the feet.
  • Never walk barefoot. Even at home! Always wear shoes or slippers. You can step on something and get a scratch or cut.
  • Take care of your diabetes. Keep blood sugar levels under control.
  • Do not smoke. Smoking blocks the flow of blood to your feet.
  • Get a foot test from time to time. Seeing a doctor who regularly operates on your foot and ankle can help prevent diabetic foot problems.
