HEALTHY FEET are HAPPY FEET!

People with diabetes are probably familiar with the importance of foot care. According to the CDC, about half of all people with diabetes have some kind of diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage and there are four different kinds: peripheral, autonomic, focal, and proximal neuropathy. Nerve damage can happen in any part of your body, but nerves in your feet and legs are the most common. This condition may result in pain, numbness, and tingling in your feet.

Healthcare professionals recommend checking your feet every day and early treatment can reduce the risk of complications. Some other tips for healthy feet are washing your feet every day in warm water, never go barefoot to avoid injury, wear shoes the fit well, make sure to trim your toenails straight across, and keep the blood flowing. One of the ways to make sure you have proper blood flow in your legs and feet is by wearing the right pair of socks. The Diabetic Sock Club can help with taking care of your foot regimen. Diabetic socks are designed to provide more pressure at the foot and less pressure on the calves to help maintain proper circulation to the lower extremities. These socks can also help prevent blood clots, and assist in relieving achy legs. In business for 10+ years, the Diabetic Sock Club is proud to be a Made in America company. The go-to-choice for thousands, DSC prides itself in delivering quality, comfort, and great fitting socks!

The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is proud to announce a partnership with the Diabetic Sock Club. From now until the end of March you can visit www.diabeticsockclub.com to save 20% of your purchase when you use code: DRI20.

 The Diabetic Sock Club is also offering a DRI Donate button at check- out and all donations will go directly to the Diabetes Research Institute to support research for a cure for diabetes. You can feel confident in your purchase if for any reason your socks get a hole or wear out within the first year, just send them back and DSC will replace them at no additional charge.

Following good foot care habits will go a long way toward keeping your feet healthy. Support your feet and support the best hope for a cure!
