MediPEDS Diabetic Socks Review | Diabetic Sock Club – DIABETIC SOCK CLUB

MediPEDS Diabetic Socks Reviewed

MediPEDS Diabetic Socks are intended to serve those who have or would like to prevent diabetes-related foot problems, and while they do address several of the primary issues diabetics face when it comes to their feet, they miss the mark on many more.

The socks consist of 45% Cotton, 42% Coolmax Polyester, 9% Polyester, 3% Nylon, and 1% Lycra Spandex, making them a great choice for those who experience a lot of sweating from their feet, as this blend helps to wick away moisture. This is vital for diabetics especially, because moisture left on or around the foot for a long time can lead to fungal infections that may develop into more serious issues over time.

However, these socks are not an ideal choice for anyone who already has issues with their feet, nor anyone who is at serious risk of diabetic neuropathy or peripheral arterial disease, conditions which reduce sensation and blood flow in the feet and legs, respectively. This is because the sock’s “non binding” funnel top is often reported to leave marks on the wearer’s feet and legs after only a short time of wearing them. This is a big indicator that the socks are cutting off circulation to the feet and lower legs and should not be worn. Many customers report that even when they bought a larger size, the top of the sock was too tight. This is a major strike against the MediPEDS socks. Compromising on sock size poses hazards to your feet, so don’t try to adjust that to accommodate tighter socks. You should always buy socks in the correct size for your feet, because baggy socks can cause rubbing and blistering, but if the top is too tight, it’s a deal breaker, taking these socks out of the running.

In addition, you’ll likely want some socks with more substance than the MediPEDS Diabetic Socks if you plan to exercise intensively or walk on rough terrain, as these socks lack much cushioning, leaving your feet unprotected. The top of the sock is also rather thin, which is great for moisture evaporation but terrible for keeping your lower legs safe from thorns, twigs, or brush.

To conclude, these socks are not the best choice for you if you already suffer from foot complications, but they may be suitable for wearing to bed or when minimal walking is necessary. Check out our store for more versatile options for your everyday life and adventurous excursions.
