A diabetic sock is a sock which is specially designed for those with diabetes. Diabetes raises the blood sugar level, which can increase the risk of foot ulcers. Diabetic socks are made to control moisture, which can reduce the risk of infection, and they are made without seams or wrinkle-prone material to reduce pressure and blistering.
Additional recommended knowledge
Another benefit is a non-binding top. Loose tops constrict less and improve blood flow. This may help the large percentage of diabetics with neuropathy.[specify]
