Peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that causes numbness or insensitivity in the feet and legs and is often associated with diabetes. Sores, ulcers, or blisters caused by rough toe seams or moisture may go unnoticed and can lead to dangerous infections. Swelling related to circulatory deficiencies can also cause discomfort in legs and feet. Socks that reduce abrasion, minimize bunching, and do not hold moisture or restrict blood flow.
- Approximately 30 million people are diagnosed as having diabetes and an additional estimated 84 million are pre-diabetic
- It is estimated that one-third to one-half of people with diabetes also have peripheral neuropathy
