Her topic “Diabetes Has Met its Match” when it comes to Billy Jean

I read a very interesting blog from Billy Jean King the other day, and because I received a full college scholarship for playing tennis,.

She is one person I’ve always admired. Additionally, she is the founder of Women’s Sports Foundation which is another reason why I respect her off the court as well.

For those who may not have seen this article, the following are some of her statements about nutrition and diabetes.

“When I have diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about three years ago, I was presented with a challenge, and like many athletes I wanted a total plan, taking in body, mind, and soul.

How was I going to beat this opponent?”

“I knew it would take a combination of diet and exercise to get my diabetes under control.

The last 12 months have been challenging as I have just had a double knee replacement and being away from my normal exercise routine presented an entirely new set of challenges and taught me to modify things to fit the situation.

Now that I’m back 100%, I’m hitting tennis balls, back at the gym and for the first time in a long time, I take frequent walks in Central Park.”

“For me, managing my diabetes has been all about making smart food choices without depriving myself of the foods I Love.”

“So, whether you have diabetes or you’re trying to prevent it, I hope you’ll take a moment to reflect before you sit down for your next meal”.

Billy Jean is 100% correct in that exercise and nutrition are major elements in aiding you to control diabetes and avoiding this disease altogether.

There are additional means available to help in controlling your disease when it comes to caring for your feet.

The proper footwear is the most important control factor and, please, no comfort shoes, but rather a shoe that is therapeutic footwear with an added feature of comfort.

Type “Shoes Diabetic” and/or “Shoes for Diabetic” into your browser and learn what they are all about. I want you to try a Heat Customize Moldable Plastazote Insert that will add circulation to your body system, added balance for your gait, and support that is needed for everyday walking or running.

Decreased blood flow from diabetes will often slow down the healing process.

When your wound is not healing, it’s at risk for infection, and as a diabetic, your infections spread quickly.

If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet at least every day, preferably twice a day making sure to inspect the bottom of your feet as well.

You are looking for signs of puncture wounds, bruises, and pressure areas of redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts, and nail problems.


Health is the number one priority for any person, but especially a person who has diabetes.

Intake of proper food creates better weight control and helps control diabetes.

We want to create the proper health for your feet, and all done with proper footwear and proper inserts.

The following information you’ll be reading is what is required to achieve that perfect health for your feet.

Please allow us to get you fitted with the proper footwear, and hopefully, with our help, you will be working your way toward success in keeping this disease out of your feet.

We, at “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic,” know that proper footwear for you and the need to have the proper inserts to keep diabetes out of your feet is essential.

Footwear should be fashionable (and we have that), but the ultimate purpose of the shoe is to control upper support and to off-load any problems that you have on the top of your foot.

If you are experiencing issues with the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of a proper, removable insert to correct them.

Many people believe that it is the shoe that solves all or most of the problems for people with diabetes or people with significant foot problems, but that is not always the case.

Off-loading requires three elements – corrections, added support, and needed circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.

Shoes for diabetics should not have inside seams that create irritation.

First of all, the proper shoe needs to be an Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (which many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today).

Secondly, Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Inserts are necessary.

Besides great support, the other advantages of added off-loading will help you develop a better balance for walking or running.

Then, the 2% increase in temperature of the bottom of your feet will aid in developing better circulation to keep the disease out of your feet.

Think of the added pleasures and advantages in just one item.

We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country.

We have the lengths and the hard-to-find widths.

And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.”

Anyone who requires an adequately fitted width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe.

What that means:

That every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe.

As for example, if you require a 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E bottom for the base of that width.

Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance.

Also, be sure to wear proper footwear and use inserts to keep this disease out of your feet.

Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic” will teach you the many advantages of proper footwear and why Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort shoes are the only way to ensure a successful fit and the comfort you want.

A comfort shoe is not always an Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoe.

And also, keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support.

The lack of midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time.

These combined movements will increase stress to your feet. Please view all our styles by going to our site


We, at DTF, have a deep concern for people with diabetes and their need for properly-fitted footwear.

We can provide 15 different widths for Men and Ladies.

 4 A (Slender for Ladies), 2 A (Narrow for Ladies), B (Narrow for Men and Medium for Ladies) D ( Medium for Men and Wide for Ladies) 2 E, 3 E, 4 E, 5 E, 6 E, 7 E, 9 E, 10 E, and 14 E in both men and women footwear.

Dtfootwear can help those who have difficulty finding “oversizes” – up to 15 in length for Women and up to 20 in length for Men.

We can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length for ladies in wider widths and 5 to 6 in Men-style in wider widths.

In addition to being capable of providing these wide widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear.

We are offering a FREE GIFT to you!

With every pair of shoes purchased, we will include up to (3) sets of Customized Heat Moldable Inserts that will provide even more support, added balance, and stability every time you wear your shoes.
