Cold feet


(jdjim) #1

After 53 years T1D I am experiencing neuropathy to the point that my feet are achy and cold. Does anyone have a type of sock that might help me?

Hi @jdjim , what I’ve found for [lower member] peripheral neuropathy is helpful is support hose - I have worn these for the last 16 of my 60+ years living with diabetes and my feet feel good. Much better than they did for several years prior.
These up-to-knee compressions do not always prevent cold, so on the very few times when my toes get cold in the evenings, I pull on a pair of slipper socks [the type given to hospital patients] and I’m fine.
