3. Ask your provider about special shoes
There are special shoes that can make it easier for someone with foot problems due to diabetes to protect their feet. The main problem is that your feet don’t heal nearly as well as they did before you had diabetes and it can be quite easy to get a cut or scrape that could become infected and cause a permanent disability.
Some of the tips listed here will help to combat that of course, but diabetic shoes can do a great deal to protect your feet. Ask your provider for a prescription. Your insurance may even pay for it.
