Pop Star, Nick Jonas tells his story about his fight with Diabetes.
Nick Jonas is a member of the Jonas Brothers Band, and this group has really made an impression on young ladies but a greater impression on the music hit chart. In November 2005, Nick found out that he had Type1 diabetes. A month or two before Nick was diagnosed, he began to notice usual symptoms of losing weight, bad attitude, being thirsty and going to the bathroom all the time. He lost about fifteen pounds in two to three weeks and to him, that was just crazy, especially because he was a slender young man to start. Once he got to a doctor, he learned that his blood sugar was over 700. To suddenly find out that he was a diabetic was overwhelming. His discovery was over a very short time but with the help of the band and his family and friends, he learned what he had to do to make his life better. His main need was daily injections of NovoLog with Lantus and checking his blood sugar about 12 times a day.
He knows that diabetes is a huge part of his life and he can’t forget about it. He said that “I have to keep taking care of it and managing the disease and learning more things about it. Hopefully one day they’ll come up with some type of cure, and I hope I’ll be one of the first to know about it.” Nick thank you for a story that a lot of people can learn from, a story showing the alert signs of diabetes.
I hope one day we can get Nick into our unbelievable footwear to see why we are one of the fastest growing footwear providers for diabetics in the country. I want him to experience wearing our therapeutic/comfort footwear while he is working, exercising and during his leisure time. Our products could do so much to help his feet be and feel healthier.
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 important. 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 problems 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 diabetics or people with major foot problems, but that is not always the case. Off-loading requires three elements – corrections, added support and developing added circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the 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 a proper fitting width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain the foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. What that means is every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. For example, if you require a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E 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.
A comfort shoe is not always a 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.

We, at DTF, have a deep concern for diabetics and their need for properly fitted footwear. We can provide “wide widths” – 4A to 14E – in both men’s and women’s footwear, and we can help those who have difficulty finding “over sizes” – 11 to 17 in length. We, also, can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length. 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.
I hope that this blog has provided you with enough information to help you understand how we can help you.
