Wearing proper footwear when diabetic

 

Victor Garber’s role in a lifetime was dealing with diabetes … whether on Broadway, the Silver Screen or television. You have probably seen actor Victor Garber in one role or another. He played Jesus in “Godspell.” In “Sleepless in Seattle,” Garber appeared in a hilarious, movie-stealing scene with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. Garber was seen every week on the hit television series “Alias.” And, he was the Titanic’s designer in the highest-grossing movie ever of the same name.

A professional actor since the age of 10, Garber, now 60, is no stranger to juggling the demands of busy schedules and responsibilities. His biggest “role,” however, came at the age of 12 when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Living the part of a person with Type 1 often required him to do the seemingly impossible; balance his hectic daily acting schedule with the rigorous challenges of injecting insulin and managing blood glucose with limited technology.

Back in those days, Garber had to test his urine four times a day in addition to taking insulin shots. But even with diabetes, he always kept focused on his career.
A great actor and person, who had the pressures of success on the stage and the screen, also had to learn how to handle survival at a very young age. Medical science has come to a long ways since those early years. Thank you, Mr. Garber, for your story, and I hope his story inspires others to keep in mind that your drive and inner strength is what will propel you toward success.

I wish Victor Garber could experience wearing our therapeutic/comfort footwear while he is working, exercising and during the leisure time. Our products could do so much to help his feet be and feel healthier. We may not be able to aid Mr. Garber but I am hopeful that we will be given the opportunity to help those who are reading this blog.

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 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.
