Diabetic socks incorporate ribbed tops and are non-elasticised and non-bonding socks aimed to prevent constriction of the foot and leg. Most of these socks also use seamless toe closures. Diabetic patients with high blood sugar become prone to foot ulcers. They tend to use these socks commonly because they offer unrestrictive circulation. Some diabetic socks can control moisture, which can minimise the risk of infection. Some of these socks offer antibacterial properties, preventing smells and odours.
The diabetic socks you find on eBay come in a variety of materials. Some of these include 100 per cent cotton; blends of cotton and nylon in different ratios; blends of wool, polyester, viscose, and acrylic; and blends of cotton, polyester, Lycra, and polyamide. These socks sell in an assortment of colours, like white, black, grey, blue, green, and beige. If you suffer from diabetes, looking after your health is in your best interest. Wear these socks at any time, and keep formal and casual designs handy.
