Cost shouldn’t be a consideration when buying diabetic socks, especially in light of their many benefits. In fact, consistently wearing high quality diabetic socks may be all that’s required to prevent some of the most common foot problems affecting diabetics.
Another happy patient!
Don’t be afraid to come in because you think you might lose your foot. The earlier you come in, the better chance we have of actually saving your leg and you going on to full healing and resuming all your daily activities.

Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Neuropathy
The most common complication of diabetes is neuropathy. Unfortunately, even with your blood sugar in good control, neuropathy may occur. In fact, over time, this will occur in up to 50% of diabetics. Once diabetic neuropathy occurs, it almost always gets worse. Neuropathy is the leading cause of the ulcerations and infections that occur in the feet, and with advanced cases, amputation.
