Diabetic Shoe Program
Diabetes can lead to nerve damage and reduced circulation in the feet. When this happens, sensation is reduced so patients may not feel when their feet are injured, and poor circulation can make it more difficult for foot injuries and infections to heal. Well-made, properly fitting footwear can reduce the risk of calluses, blisters and foot ulcers. Serious complications associated with diabetes may ultimately lead to amputation, but these problems can often be avoided by wearing diabetic shoes.
Diabetic shoes are different from regular shoes because diabetic shoes:
- are extra wide and deep to alleviate pressure
- do not have seams that rub on pressure points
- are molded to the wearer's foot
- are made from leather or other material of equal quality
- have removable inserts that can be replaced as needed
- have some form of shoe closure, such as laces or Velcro™, to keep the foot in place and avoid rubbing
Many insurances and some Medicare programs will pay for a new pair of diabetic shoes each year.
