Many diabetics often worry about the different inconveniences that could arise during their travels. In the midst of physical examinations and medical preparations, many people tend to overlook one very important thing- your choice of socks!
Due to the amount of time we spend sitting and standing during a trip, your feet inevitably get numb and swell up. This is even more so in the case of diabetic patients- as they also experience poor blood flow. Hence making it all the more important to be picky and smart about the socks you wear.
So, what kind of socks should you be wearing while traveling?
1. Bamboo fiber
Bamboo rayon is a kind of cellulose fiber extracted from naturally growing bamboo, which features superior breathability, instantaneous moisture absorbency, and outstanding durability, while also equipped with high-performance odor control and thermo-regulation. Such socks are not very thick, but breathable and have cushioned soles to protect the feet. It also effectively prevents patients from foot injuries.
Choosing light-colored socks has two advantages:
- It is easier to find foot injuries on time.
- Avoids dye stains on the feet. Some dark socks may also lose color and damage the skin.
