Why do diabetics need special foot products?

Generally, one in four diabetics suffers from foot problems. Diabetics have an increased risk of foot problems due to:

  • Frequent microcirculatory problems and a gradual loss of sensation and sensitivity in their feet.
  • Extremely dry skin.
  • Increased risk of infection in wounds (diabetics may not notice a cut, lesion or burn injury due to decreased sensitivity in their feet).

Foot problems are the primary cause of hospitalisation among diabetics. However, proper foot care and attention can prevent serious complications.
