If you are Diabetic, there are specially designed shoes for the diabetic at Happy Feet Pedorthics. Diabetes raises blood sugar levels. Diabetics can lose feeling in the feet and can become unable to notice things like blisters and cuts, that could lead to ulcers and infection.
Diabetic foot problems may be as a result of poorly fitting shoes. Regular podiatry foot care is highly recommended for the diabetic alongside properly assessed and fitted footwear.
For diabetics, reduced or no seams, cushioning and the correct width, depth and length are a must. Foot shape, neuropathy, amputations, wounds, oedema, your orthoses needs and bandaging must also be considered. When you have diabetes, the key to happy feet is to wear good shoes, check your feet daily, and exercise every day.
At Happy Feet Pedorthics, our Pedorthists are expert in assessing, fitting and recommending specially designed shoes for diabetics. Often a person who is a diabetic requires a shoe which has extra depth and width, designed to give more comfort and safety as part of the health plan for the diabetic.
