Are Compression Socks Good for Diabetics?

If you live with diabetes, you know that pain and discomfort can be a daily challenge, especially for your feet. People with diabetes can face obstacles that impede their active or busy lifestyles, from numbness and poor circulation to swelling and edema. Fortunately, compression socks like Feetures' Graduated Compression Socks can provide support and relief. With these socks, you can keep your feet comfortable and your life running on schedule.

What Are Compression Socks?

Compression socks are designed to apply gentle pressure to the legs and feet to promote better circulation and increased blood flow. This means reduced swelling and discomfort, along with the decreased risk of other circulation problems all welcomed results to those living with diabetes.

Feetures Women's and Men's Graduated Compression Socks apply progressive and targeted pressure, meaning that the compression is most significant at the ankle and progressively lessens moving up the leg. Our socks offer 15 to 20mmHg of pressure, making them great for improved circulation and safe for everyday wear.

Benefits of Compression Socks

Compression socks promote better circulation and pain relief for diabetics and offer a variety of benefits that people with or without diabetes can benefit from:

  • Reduced risk of deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, and blood clots
  • Improved venous return for prevention of spider and varicose veins
  • Prevention of orthostatic hypotension (lightheadedness or unsteadiness upon standing)
  • Reduced pain caused by varicose veins
  • Reversal of venous hypertension
  • Increased movement and drainage of the lymphatic system
  • Reduced muscle fatigue for faster recovery

Feetures' targeted compression socks also include high-density cushioning and an anatomical design for maximum all-day comfort. They'll have the same snug and comfortable fit at the end of the day as they did the first time you put them on, no matter what life throws at you.
