Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Compression Socks Do to Help with Diabetes?

Nurse Yard’s diabetic compression socks have a number of benefits for diabetics. Individuals with diabetes are more prone to developing venous conditions that inhibit blood flow, loss of feeling in their feet, and swelling in the legs.  

Wearing compression socks helps alleviate these issues by improving circulation in the legs and feet, which can reduce swelling and prevent venous conditions from worsening. Numbness in the feet makes diabetic people more prone to overlooking small wounds in their feet—improved blood circulation and breathable fabrics help such wounds heal faster, which prevents infections. 

Additionally, compression socks’ graduated compression supports the muscles, tendons, and circulatory system in the legs to alleviate pressure on the feet and joints. This can make it easier and more comfortable to walk.

Do Compression Socks Work for Diabetic Neuropathy?

Compression socks have shown promising results in managing diabetic neuropathy, a condition characterized by nerve damage in the extremities. Diabetic neuropathy often causes symptoms like tingling, numbness, and burning sensations in the legs and feet. Compression socks can be effective in alleviating these symptoms by improving blood circulation.

The controlled pressure exerted by compression socks helps stimulate blood flow to the affected areas, reducing the discomfort associated with neuropathy. By enhancing circulation, these socks can also aid in preventing further nerve damage and complications. However, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using compression socks for diabetic neuropathy, as individual cases may vary, and a personalized approach to treatment is recommended.

When Should I Wear Diabetic Compression Socks?

Diabetic compression socks can be worn at various times, depending upon your specific needs and the advice of your healthcare provider. Here are some common scenarios when wearing diabetic compression socks is beneficial:

  • During the day: Many individuals with diabetes wear compression socks during the day to promote better circulation, reduce swelling, and minimize discomfort.
  • While exercising: If you engage in physical activity, especially walking or jogging, wearing compression socks can provide added support and help maintain good blood flow to your legs and feet.
  • During long periods of sitting or standing: If your daily routine involves extended periods of sitting or standing, wearing compression socks can prevent blood from pooling in your legs and reduce the risk of complications.
  • As recommended by your doctor: Your healthcare provider may recommend specific times to wear compression socks based on your unique medical history and needs.

How Long Should I Wear Compression Socks for Diabetes?

The duration of wearing compression socks for diabetes can vary from person to person and depends on your specific condition and the recommendations of your healthcare provider. Some individuals may need to wear them consistently throughout the day, while others may only require them during specific activities or as a preventive measure.

It's crucial to follow your healthcare provider's guidance regarding the duration and frequency of wearing compression socks. They will consider your medical history, the severity of your diabetes, and any existing complications to provide personalized recommendations. Regular communication with your healthcare team will help ensure that you are using compression socks effectively to manage your diabetes and maintain optimal foot health.

Your customer service is wonderful. Needed a larger size and you shipped them right away. I have the black and Grey core socks. The Grey pattern looks and feels like k tape. All the patterns provide the perfect support. Really like the band at the knee. Actually had room for the lymph to move up to the torso. Best of all worlds. Will absolutely get more. Thanks Paula

Such a relief to find this product.

Several years ago I had an infection that started in my right leg. It initially looked like a bug bite but then began to throb and have electric like shocks. After seeking medical attention and received some good and bad advice on remedying this issue it had gotten worse and after receiving a biopsy on my left leg that also become infected, I ended in up wound care at our local hospital. There I was told even when I recovered from the infection I would need to wear compression stockings for the rest of my life. Fast-forward after trying several companies I had some success but most compression socks I tried would be tight but didn't relieve the swelling at times or the pain, until I tried Nurses Yard. These have been a welcome find and I wear them all the time. My doctor is surprised as he said most people don't listen to him , I told him to recommend Nurses Yard because they really work.

Best fit ever!!

These stockings were recommended by my dental hygienist , She showed me them on her legs at the office. She couldn't say enough about haw comfortable they are. My doctor told me to get compression hose because my legs swell. I've tried many only to return them because I have a large leg and I felt like they were squeezing me too hard. Then I tried Nurse Guard which are just wonderful ! I had little bit of a hard time getting them on, but once on I didn't notice any discomfort and wore them all day.

Thank you for your positive review of our Nurse Yard CORE Compression Socks! We're so glad to hear that they are the best fit ever for you.
