Doctor or nutritionist with a diabetic patient explaining glycemic index

Foot moisture is the natural enemy of every diabetes patient. A wet foot increases the likelihood of blister formation and fungal infection. These are problems that diabetes patients may not be able to notice right away with the limited sense of feeling in their extremities. This can allow infections to fester, potentially requiring amputation or worse, when they are finally discovered. Thankfully, diabetic socks can reduce the amount of moisture present in the foot, in turn lowering the odds for these potentially serious problems to develop.
