Compression therapy for diabetes

Benefits of compression therapy

Diabetic patients should talk to their doctor, pharmacist or diabetic educator about SIGVARIS Diabetic Compression Socks, as they could be the right choice if: 

  • Patients have been advised to change their diet and increase their physical activity 
  • Patients are experiencing swelling in their feet, ankles or legs 
  • Patients are currently pregnant and are experiencing gestational diabetes

Most diabetic patients will benefit from less swelling when wearing SIGVARIS Diabetic Compression Socks. However, not all diabetic patients should wear compression. If a diabetic patient has severe arterial insufficiency, a compression sock may not be right treatment. And, if any discomfort is noticed while wearing this garment, it must be removed and the patient should consult a doctor.
