People with diabetes are prone to developing circulation problems and foot injuries that take a long time to heal. Many doctors advise wearing padded socks that fit well and are made from natural materials like cotton and wool to provide cushioning and absorb moisture. However, diabetic socks usually provide a lot of cushioning to prevent blisters and ulcers and are made from acrylic and other synthetic fibers that wick moisture away from the foot to prevent blisters and fungal infection.
