A warning from
Diabetes UK

People with diabetes are more likely to be admitted to hospital with a foot ulcer than anything else.

When you're diagnosed with diabetes, you could be forgiven for worrying solely about needles and focus solely on the constant issue of controlling your sugar level.

But what about the lurking danger, one that has to be monitored just as closely, the risk to your feet?

The reduced sensation you experience when you have diabetes is particularly problematic on the feet, and it's very easy to develop serious skin conditions such as ulcers and gangrene – conditions that lead to needless amputations.

Reed Medical want to stop you being part of those statistics. Protecting your feet starts with your socks, and Reed Medical are providing that vital weapon.

I thought, 'a sock is a sock' – but that's not true. Protect iT™ do exactly what they say on the tin. I was pleasantly surprised.

Proper foot care

The problem is many people simply don't have time for proper foot care.

However, a new sock brought to the UK by Reed Medical could help prevent these problems developing – reducing the risk of amputation – and is recommended by the Vice Chairman of SOCAP.
