Diabetic socks have grown in demand because of the leg health complications of the growing population, but it is also introducing new options in prevention for young people.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2010
Sugar Free Sox has announced a new line of fashionable diabetic socks that can be used by everyone in the prevention of varicose veins. Reducing your chance of having varicose veins can be done by eliminating the sock ring imprint normal elastic top socks leave behind. Though the blood restriction is small, the accumulative affect is great. The Sugar Free Sox line has a non-binding top and a special knitting technique to allow the sock to stretch further than normal while conforming to the leg and keeping the sock up. Though these types of socks are categorized diabetic, everyone can utilize them for good leg health prevention.
Varicose veins are superficial veins in your leg that are affected to high pressure activities such as standing. These veins carry blood back to the heart, working against gravity. A few of the signs and symptoms of varicose veins include heaviness, fatigue, achiness, spider web appearance, cramps and even blood clotting. Decreasing restriction from the daily use of elastic socks will keep these veins stronger and increase blood flow.
There are two types of health socks that can be utilized to help prevent varicose veins. Diabetic socks have been mentioned because of the non-interference with the blood flow with the non-binding sock. The second choice is compression socks, which interact with the leg by applying pressure aiding the return of blood back to the heart. Compression socks are used in the treatment to relieve pain from varicose veins as well as in the prevention and ideal for those who work on their feet all day.
Everyone would say no to wearing rubber bands around their legs for 40 years, but that is what is happening with normal elastic socks. The diabetes explosion with the baby boomer generation has created many different aspects of life to consider for young people to maintain good health. Sugar Free Sox President Gary Meade told us, “Diabetic socks have grown in demand because of the leg health complications of the growing population, but it is also introducing a new option in prevention for young people.”
Utilizing health socks to prevent varicose veins is a new technique to avoid the painful and ugly varicose veins problem most of us will face as we age. For more information about Sugar Free Sox visit http://www.sugarfreesox.com or call 858.481.7691.
