Diabetic Insoles from Healthandcare.co.uk

Monday, 28 April 2014  |  Amy

Diabetes can affect more than just monitoring your blood sugar levels. People with diabetes will already be aware that it can reduce the blood supply to the feet, sometimes causing a loss of feeling called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy is not currently medically treatable, however good foot care can prevent foot injuries that will be harder to heal.

The following steps are recommended to help reduce the risk of foot injuries:

  • Avoid walking barefoot to reduce the risk of injuries and infections.
  • Try not to sit cross legged, or in positions that put extra pressure on parts of your feet.
  • Wear shoes which do not rub or apply pressure to your feet.
  • Cut or file your toenails regularly.
  • If you do experience foot blisters or injuries that do not heal quickly, seek medical treatment from your local GP or podiatrist.
  • Treat ulcers urgently, within 24 hours, especially if there is redness or swelling around the area, or in an area where you've previously been warned to seek immediate attention.

To help with diabetic foot care, here are 3 insoles specifically designed for sensitive feet and pain prevention.

Diaped Therapeutic Diabetic Insoles

The Diaped Therapeutic Diabetic Insoles are specially designed to help people with diabetes, arthritis, or other conditions that result in sensitive feet. They are technically advanced insoles that offer superb resilience, cushioning, and shock absorption are specially constructed for diabetic sufferers.

Diaped Therapeutic Diabetic Insoles are manufactured using VyGel, a technologically advanced medical grade viscoelastic gel designed to provide shock absorbtion in high impact areas which helps to relieve stress in the lower back and legs.
