The three most common complications with Diabetic World and the need for proper “Shoes for Diabetic”
Diabetes can affect many parts of the body, especially the feet. Diabetes can affect the feet in a number of different ways. One is a decreased immune response. This may lead to poor wound healing or the inability to fight infections. Infections are one of the most commonly reported complications of the diabetic foot. If neglected, an infection can set in and this can cause major problems down the road.
Another well know problem of being a diabetic is neuropathy. This is the poor functioning of the nerves found in the foot. Decreased sensation of pain and temperature may present itself as burning, stinging, numbness, shooting or aching pains. Without proper “Shoes for Diabetes,” this decrease can culminate in poor balance and underestimate foot problems that can be corrected with a proper heat moldable plastazote that will help correct these problems (the same insert we provide FREE with any purchase of any shoe from us). Another complication is nerves to the skin malfunction causing a decrease in perspiration or oils released to the skin. This will lead to dry, cracking skin that can more easily become infected.
The third complication of diabetes is poor circulation to the feet. This can also lead to wounds or non-healing and makes the diabetic at a higher risk for infection.
We have the best athletic, casual, dressy designs, walking styles of men’s and women’s in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the length and the widths and where proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes” Any person who needs a proper fitting width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to properly house their foot with no hangover of their feet off the shoe. What is meant is that every width with us (in a good percentage of our shoes) is two widths wider at the outsole of the shoe. So if you need a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. So again no hangover of your feet and a perfect base for your feet to have all the support and balance that is needed.
A Comfort shoe is usually not a Therapeutic shoe and a Comfort shoe usually has very little mid-section support. The lack of the mid-section support allows your feet to be moving forward and laterally at the same time. These two movements add a great deal more wear and tear on your feet. If you need a view of all our styles, please go to our site dtfootwear.com
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.
