Diabetic Foot Care
Many people with diabetes have circulatory issues, which can affect their nerve endings in their feet and toes. The result is a loss of protective sensation or commonly known as neuropathy.
When you combine the loss of protective sensation with ill-fitting shoes, sores may develop because of rubbing, slipping or shearing which may lead to serious problems and eventually amputations. Diabetic shoes are specially designed and constructed with extra depth and inserts. Wearing Diabetic shoes provides your feet with the extra protection they need. With a doctor’s prescription our certified diabetic shoe fitters will evaluate your feet and help you choose the right type of shoes from a wide selection of styles and colors.
Diabetic shoes with inserts are covered by Medicare Part B and Health Insurance carriers and a pair is available every calendar year. Come and see our selection of Diabetic shoes today and set up a consultation with our certified fitter!
