Why do I need special footwear if I have diabetes?
Peripheral neuropathy, or the loss of sensation in the extremities, is a common side-effect of diabetes. Shoes that don't fit properly can cause lesions and ulcers, the number one reason people with diabetes visit the hospital. Diabetic shoes that are fitted properly have good air circulation and special insoles to help prevent sores and injuries. At CarePro Home Medical, we take the time to discuss your needs and specially fit your shoes so they're comfortable and properly cushioned. And who says your feet can't look good too? We carry a selection of diabetic shoes for men and women that will fit your personal style.
