 Viasox: How To Take Diabetes Foot Care To The Next Level 


Foot problems are common among people suffering from diabetes. High blood sugar levels can harm blood vessels and limit blood flow to the legs. Poor circulation can make the skin more vulnerable, contribute to the formation of ulcers and inhibit the healing process. More serious consequences include deep infections of the skin and bones. Gangrene (death of living tissue) is a significant complication that may require amputation of the foot. Approximately 5% of diabetics will eventually need a limb amputation. This tragic outcome can be avoided by controlling blood sugar levels, exercising regularly, and practicing daily foot care.

In this article, we look into the vitality of diabetic socks for preventing unwanted diabetes complications, while also recommending the best manufacturers on the market.

Why Diabetic Socks Are Essential

Diabetic socks have been developed to reduce the risk of foot damage, increase blood flow, and keep the feet comfortable. High-quality diabetic socks should include the following features:

Seamlessness: Socks with seams can irritate the skin, causing blisters and ulcers, which can be extremely harmful to diabetic feet. The finest diabetic socks are seamless and soft, just like the triple padded antimicrobial bamboo soles offered by Viasox, the undisputed leader in the diabetic apparel market.

Stretchiness: Diabetic socks should have a loose, non-restrictive fit and a super stretch feel. 

Moisture-resistance: To prevent diverse infections and odor, opt for socks made from acrylic fibers that can prevent moisture and keep your feet dry.

Antimicrobial resistance: To prevent germs and fungal growth, diabetic socks should be made with anti-microbial materials. 

What About Compression Socks?

People with varicose veins and blood clots can benefit from wearing compression socks as they help increase blood circulation in the leg through mild compression. These socks, which come in a variety of compression tightness, are typically tightest around the ankle and loosen up as they progress up the leg. Not every diabetic requires compression socks; patients should consult with their doctor to choose the best type for their specific needs. 

The Best Workout Socks

Exercise aids blood glucose control in diabetics while also lowering cardiovascular risk factors, facilitating weight loss, and boosting general well-being. However, certain forms of exercise can be hard on your feet. This is why it is critical to have the proper socks for whichever activity you pick. Wear socks with no inside seams, as they may cause friction, blistering, and foot ulcers. Available in diverse eye-popping colors, Viasox‘s seamless diabetic socks shall let your feet breathe whether you’re working out or taking an evening stroll.

To Sum Up

Foot problems are a major concern for many diabetics. Yet it is possible to maintain good health by adopting a robust foot care plan. To keep your feet safe and dry from day to day, you should invest in proper shoes and diabetic socks.

Give your feet the attention they deserve. Start by taking a look at Viasox’s diabetic apparel catalog which includes diabetic socks, compression socks, pain relief creams, and orthopedic shoes.
