Make the best investment for your foot health, and treat your feet to the ultra soft alpaca therapeutic non constricting diabetic sock. Diabetic socks are specially designed socks to 1) reduce pressure in the lower leg and foot, 2) prevent blistering on the skin surfaces, and 3) minimize moisture accumulation. The Alpaca Fiber is hydrophobic and pulls moisture away from feet to keep you feet dry. Ultimately, their jobs are to protect your feet and provide maximum comfort. These socks are typically non-elastic and seamless. These therapeutic alpaca socks have non-elastic feature is to prevent constriction due to common feet swelling tendencies. The seamless design is to minimize friction to the nerves and minimize neurological discomfort and pain. The Alpaca fiber is also antimicrobial in nature and prevents foot odor. These socks simply fit well to prevent restrictions in the calf from a tight sock line that can limit circulation. When circulation is decreased, it becomes harder for the body to heal. High blood sugar associated with diabetes also causes the immune system to slow down. Therapeutic non constricting alpaca socks are one way to combat this duo of issues to prevent the need for future amputation or even death due to foot injury.
In addition to being ultra soft and comfortable on the feet the therapeutic Alpaca socks are always slightly cushioned to prevent injury. At the same time, the hydrophobic nature of the alpaca fiber has a moisture-wicking ability so that sweat and humidity from your shoes are not trapped between the sock and foot. By keeping your feet dry, your feet are less likely to develop blisters and fungal infections.
