Are Siren Diabetic Socks for you? This is one of the questions we get quite frequently. Siren Diabetic Socks are designed to help people with diabetes and neuropathy prevent foot ulcers and amputations. If you have diabetes and neuropathy, or neuropathy from other causes, you should be wearing our socks.
Read on to see how Siren Socks can help you if you have diabetes or neuropathy!
Siren Diabetic Socks for People with Diabetes
People with diabetes are at a higher risk of problems like foot infections or injuries. You may not realize it, but high blood sugar can cause damage to important parts of your body, including your feet. This is why foot care is so important for people with diabetes. When you have diabetes, you should be wearing socks every day to protect your feet.
Siren Diabetic Socks for People with Neuropathy
Neuropathy, or nerve damage, can have many different causes, including long-term diabetes and chemotherapy. Neuropathy can lead to numbness, tingling, prickling, or pain in your feet and toes. You may also lose feeling in your feet and toes. You may not feel small injuries like a cut or a blister from a pebble in your shoe. When you continue to walk on a cut or blister, it can get worse, get infected, and eventually become a bigger problem.
How Siren Diabetic Socks Help People with Diabetes and Neuropathy
The Siren Diabetic Socks and Foot Monitoring System helps you detect and manage foot ulcers caused by diabetes and neuropathy. The Siren System combines the idea of regular diabetic socks with new technology to help you find potential injuries you might not be able to find on your own.
Siren's Socks work using tiny temperature sensors that are embedded into the fabric of the socks and constantly monitoring the temperature of your feet. They look for a temperature difference between your feet, which is a sign of inflammation. Inflammation is a precursor to injury, so by measuring inflammation, you can prevent more serious injuries before they occur.
You can use the information collected by the Siren Socks to determine the best course of action with your doctor to address a potential problem with your feet. This significantly reduces your chance of developing further injury such as a foot ulcer if you have diabetes and neuropathy.
