Diabetic Shoes

Almost 65% of Americans, or over 120 million people are either overweight or obese. People who are overweight, diabetic, or have other circulatory problems are especially at risk for foot problems. According to Dr. Kern, if you are a high risk patient, a good shoe selction is critical. "A simple blister from a pair of ill-fitting shoes can become a serious infection for a diabetic patient." - Dr. Dennis Kern

Shoes that might fit well for one person could be a poor shoe choice for another. Under the Medicare Diabetic Shoe Demonstration Program, most Diabetic patients are eligible to receive one pair of custom diabetic shoes each year. Dr. Kern or our Board Certified Pedorthist can prescribe custom shoes that will meet the special foot care needs for the diabetic patient.
