Why Consider Diabetic Shoes?
People with diabetes are at an increased risk for foot ulcerations, infections and deformities. Proper footwear is therefore very important in people with diabetes. Orthopedic foot and ankle specialists can help patients choose proper footwear and recommend shoe modifications that protect the feet.
How will I know if I need a custom shoe?
If your foot’s shape has begun to change, or you’ve noticed skin breakdown, redness or swelling, you should make an appointment with your orthopedic foot and ankle specialist. Depending on the findings, shoe inserts, wedges, or custom orthotics or shoes may be recommended. When there is concern for ulceration and infection, your orthopedic foot and ankle specialist may recommend other treatments first, including special types of casts and skin care.
