IS DIABETES A CHRONIC CONDITION?/dtfootwear.com
Although diabetes is a chronic condition, it doesn’t have to slow you down from enjoying life.
Whether you’ve just been diagnosed or have been managing our conditions for hearing, you can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle by following simple guidelines for foot care and proper footwear.
What you need to know about diabetes and foot health:
28 million US adults have diabetes
60-70% will likely develop loss of sensation on their feet, a condition known as neuropathy
25% will likely develop a diabetic foot sore, also called foot ulcer
Diabetes is the leading cause of lower-extremity amputations not caused by accidents or injury, responsible for more than 60% of all cases
Nearly all (80%) diabetes-related amputations start with foot ulcers.
Because of the connection between foot ulcers and amputation, medical experts agree a key to optimal foot health is to avoid blisters and ulcers.
The use of proper footwear, regular exams, and preventative foot care reduced amputation among people with diabetes by 50%.
One of the common complications of diabetes is neuropathy or loss of feeling in the feet or legs.
This condition happens when high blood sugar damages the blood vessels that lead to your nerves, affecting their ability to feel the sensation.
You have neuropathy, you may not be aware of friction from poorly fitting shoes that can cause blisters or small injuries to the toes or foot.
If a pebble in your shoe, you may not feel that irritation, allowing it to develop into a blister or sore, If left untreated these minor problems can turn into more serious diabetic foot ulcers.
Then if infected, they can lead to amputations of the toes, foot, or leg.
Adults with diabetes may also experience decreased blood flow throughout their body, making it harder to fight infections.
As a result, wounds take longer to heal and can quickly advance to a more serious medical condition.
Many foot issues can be address and resolved- the key is catching them early.

6) All removable arch support to put a more advanced support system or customized inserts.
YES, next time you buy a new pair of shoes, make sure that it has a removable footbed.

About 85 percent of the comfort and running shoes that you purchase will have zero support in the inserts that come with the shoes.
If you can’t remove the manufacturer’s insert, then you have a problem.
The reason for the problem is that you cannot put one insert on top of another insert.
WOW, the reason that these shoes not constructed to accommodate better inserts.
