How Caring Clothing Can Help You Manage Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition that can cause a range of serious health complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and nerve damage. According to Diabetes Australia, around 1.8 million people have diabetes.

One of the most important things you can do to manage diabetes is to take care of your feet. That's where Caring Clothing comes in. A proper fitting shoe can drastically reduce foot problems and the risk of amputation as it manages the risks associated with Neuropathy (nerve damage), where the excess sugar in the bloodstream damages the peripheral nerves.

We offer a wide range of products to assist in preventing injury, the instance of ulcers, reducing pain, and ensuring appropriate foot care. Here's a look at some of the ways our products can help you manage diabetes.


Diabetic Socks

Our diabetic socks are designed to provide superior comfort and support. They're made from a soft, breathable cotton and spandex blend that helps keep feet dry and comfortable. Gripperz is a non-slip sock designed to prevent slipping or skidding as well as to promote healthy blood flow in the feet. Gripperz socks are available in a range of colours and sizes, as well as being available in ankle length and full length.


Diabetic Shoes and Slippers

Caring Clothing stocks Hush Puppies and Clarks diabetic shoes which are specifically designed to protect your feet from further injury. They feature extra-depth construction and removable insoles for custom orthotics. Additionally, they're made from soft, breathable materials that help keep feet dry and comfortable. Plus, they have a wide toe box to accommodate swelling and bunions. 

Caring Clothing’s range of diabetic shoes are long enough, wide enough, and deep enough to ensure that the feet and toes aren’t restricted. They have a thick shock-absorbing sole which reduces pressure on the bottom of the foot, which allows the wearer to be mobile for longer in comfort. They also have an easily attached and removed velcro if there are issues with mobility and flexibility. 

If you have diabetes, taking care of your feet is essential to managing the condition effectively. Caring Clothing offers a wide range of products to assist in preventing injury, reducing pain, and ensuring appropriate foot care. Our diabetic socks, shoes, and slippers can all help you keep your feet healthy and comfortable. Visit the footwear collection at Caring Clothing to view the entire shoe range for diabetics.
