Shoes and People with Diabetes

Patients with diabetes must take precautions to avoid irritation or sores on feet.

  1. Avoid walking barefoot to prevent cuts, sores, and possible infection.
  2. Wear shoes with ample room in the toes, good cushioning, and arch support.
  3. For some, special diabetic shoes with custom inserts provide the best support and protection.
