Diabetic foot care is important no matter the season.
But winter can present some unique challenges for people with diabetes, as they face threats like dry skin, increased numbness and decreased circulation.
The right diabetic footwear is important this time of year, whether that means diabetic socks, shoes or diabetic inserts. But proper footwear can only do so much. It’s important to take steps each day to make sure your feet are well cared for when winter comes.
