During the night, diabetics are advised to take their socks off in order to maximize blood flow to the extremities. Sleeping with diabetic socks allows for a tight seal around the leg which ensures that your extremities will be free of any potential cold-related injury.
These are special socks that have an open section on the bottom so they can easily stay on without being constricted.
Diabetic Socks Benefits
Diabetic socks are designed to wick away moisture and help avoid skin maceration, blistering, and ulcers. They protect those with diabetic neuropathy from cold feet by providing a buffer against the ground and insulating warmth against the cold.
