You may be asking yourself the question, why would I bother with diabetic footwear when I could wear regular shoes? Many people, especially in the summer find it unnecessary to wear diabetic footwear. Williams Brothers Pharmacy is bringing you reasons why it is important to wear diabetic footwear, especially during the summer.
A common side effect of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy, which causes loss of feeling in the extremities. Diabetic footwear can relieve pressure on the feet, reduce swelling and are typically wider than normal footwear. All of these can help prevent the loss of peripheral neuropathy. Even though the summertime is hot, that just makes it even more important to wear diabetic footwear. When your feet are hot, it increases friction, which brings the likelihood for sores.
Now, we are going to highlight some of our summer diabetic footwear options for men and women.
