People with diabetes are concerned about blood circulation in their lower legs and feet due to the elevated risks associated with diabetes. This is the reason all diabetic socks have non-binding tops above the ankle. Unfortunately, a lot of diabetic socks have tops that simply slide down the leg. EcoSox uses just enough elastic material to keep the sock up without restricting circulation.
Neuropathy or Peripheral Neuropathy is the result of damage to the peripheral nerves often causing weakness, numbness, and pain usually in your hands and feet. This condition often leaves people with very sensitive feet. To be comfortable, people with neuropathy need socks that cause little friction against the skin. EcoSox diabetic socks made from bamboo viscose are softer than those made from the softest cotton and when people put them on they describe it as a "buttery" feel as the fibers slide off the skin.
Edema is swelling caused by fluids in body tissues typically under the skin and occurring in the feet, ankles, or legs but can involve the entire body. EcoSox diabetic socks have non-binding tops that stay up but do not constrict. A perfect solution for those who need a no restriction but expect their socks to stay up.
People afflicted with diabetes, neuropathy and edema may need a diabetic sock to wear but there are plenty of people who simply prefer a relaxed fit. Of course, EcoSox offers several styles and choices so anyone can find their sock of choice!
