• Diabetic shoes

    Posted on November 29, 2009 by in Technology in the suite


    The feet are the area of the body most often affected by diabetic neuropathy.  Foot sores can lead to infections, so it’s important to wear comfortable shoes and socks that fit properly.   Diabetics need to buy shoes made from materials that can breathe such as leather, canvas, and suede.  These shoes can be purchased at specialty stores and online through websites such as bestdiabeticshoes.com.

    Medicare will pay for one pair of shoes and up to 3 innersoles per year for people with diabetes who meet specific requirements.  Click here to learn more.
