While everyone should take care of their feet diabetics should watch theirs more carefully. The American Diabetic Association website http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/complications/foot-complications/ states: "People with diabetes can develop many different foot problems. Even ordinary problems can get worse and lead to serious complications. Foot problems most often happen when there is nerve damage, also called neuropathy, which results in loss of feeling in your feet. Poor blood flow or changes in the shape of your feet or toes may also cause problems."
Their article goes on to tell of the foot problems diabetics might face and offers helpful information when dealing with things such as Neuropathy, Skin Changes, Calluses and Foot Ulcers. Their article also suggests that you "Ask your health care provider about special therapeutic shoes, rather than forcing deformed feet and toes into regular shoes."
We, at Ensor's Comfort Shoes, work closely with many doctors with patients that have diabetes and related foot problems. SAS® has shoes that work great with the diabetic feet. Some of SAS's top selling styles meet the needs of the diabetic foot.
