November is diabetes awareness month in many countries right around the globe.
Also home to World Diabetes Day (14 November), this is a great time to shine the spotlight on diabetes risk factors and diabetes support.
With 5% of Australians now diagnosed diabetics, there are many conversations to be had about the best ways to support the 1.2 million Aussies now living with diabetes every day.
As diabetics know, daily foot care is key to avoiding ulcers and amputations. Diabetes can cause damage to the nerves in a person’s feet and also to a person’s blood circulation due to poor glucose control.
With nerve damage to feet, diabetics can experience numbness, coldness of the legs, pins and needles, burning pains in the legs and feet. These symptoms can result in a loss of sensation in the feet – further increasing the risk of damage, as the person may not be able to feel any pain.
Naboso insoles can, in individual cases, help with the peripheral neuropathy that can come with diabetes, causing a decrease in foot sensation.
Having the unique textured Naboso insoles in their shoes may assist a diabetic to begin experience greater foot sensation and to better detect any further risk of foot damage.
