More Info on Diabetes Causes & Treatment
Diabetes is a medical condition that occurs when the body cannot regulate the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood. There are two classifications of diabetes: Type 1, which usually appears before the age of 30, and Type 2, which usually occurs in adulthood and is therefore referred to as adult onset diabetes.
What causes it? Diabetes is caused by insufficient amounts of the hormone insulin, or because the body has developed a resistance to insulin. Insulin helps the body turn the foods that we eat into energy. When blood glucose levels are not regulated properly, serious medical complications result. These complications can include nerve damage, poor blood circulation, problems with the vascular system, loss of appendages or limbs, and neuropathy. It is critical, therefore, for diabetics to pay special attention to their feet in order to prevent foot ulcers and other sores from developing.
How are diabetic feet treated? Fortunately, most diabetic foot problems can be prevented and treated by wearing diabetic shoes that are specially designed to protect diabetic feet, such as diabetic shoes for as well as socks for diabetes, and by following a proper foot care routine. A good foot care regimen includes washing your feet daily, protecting your feet from temperature extremes, staying active, checking your feet regularly, and wearing protective diabetic shoes and specially designed diabetic socks such as bamboo diabetic socks that have a loose, non-constricting, seamless design and a moisture wicking system.
I have Type 2 diabetes and these shoes and socks are the most comfortable that I've ever worn. I plan to purchase a pair of dress shoes very soon.

I purchased a pair of these a year ago. I have diabetes and plantar fasciitis and needed shoes with more support. I love everything about these shoes. They have held up well and are comfortable to wear. The Velcro strap on this shoe still grabs well after a year of use. After a few months of wearing my Orthofeet shoes, my plantar fasciitis is totally under control.
