If an ulcer evolves on the surface of your sole, immediately consult your physician, because you might not use your insoles any longer. In most cases individually designed footbed may help recovery from ulcer.

Diabetic Shoes

Shoes made for diabetes sufferers are deeper and wider than normal shoes, because diabetes changes the shape of the leg. In addition, the thinner insole made for diabetes sufferers must fit into the footwear. Special shoes without seams and pressure points must be made to fit softly around the sore feet or feet that have changed shape. These special shoes help to protect your feet.
