Diabetes and Cold Feet
Banish the ‘Brrr’
We invented the world’s warmest thermal socks back in 2008.
Since then, Heat Holders socks have become fond favorites among our diabetic customers. With multiple benefits to enjoy, let’s explore why our thermal socks and accessories can help improve the lives of those living with diabetes*.
How does Diabetes Cause Cold Feet and Hands?
Affecting 37.3 million people here in the US alone, Diabetes Mellitus is the medical name for a group of diseases including type I and type II diabetes. Those diagnosed with the condition may experience cold hands and feet due to poor circulation. When blood sugar levels (glucose) remain high, sluggish circulation can narrow the arteries and reduce the blood supply to the tissues (capillaries) in these regions.
Similarly, cold feet can be a symptom of nerve damage. Known as Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, it’s also caused by having high blood sugar levels over long periods of time. Unfortunately, 50% of diabetics have some form of nerve damage.
So, finding a way to warm your feet is a must.
How will Heat Holder Socks Keep my Feet Toasty Warm?
We’ve patented an extra-long looped cushion pile, paired with innovative knitting technology, to boost our breakthrough TOG rating. As a result, your feet will stay seven times warmer than when wearing a traditional cotton sock.
Our unique non-binding socks have been brushed inside for added insulation. This traps warm air around the foot and keeps the cold away. Available in three different warmth levels, our thermal socks support Medline Plus advice to wear warm socks rather than warming diabetic feet by a fireplace or heater.
What are Heat Holders Thermal Socks Made from?
Not only will your feet be warmer, but our thermal socks also meet the need for super-soft socks among diabetics. Their skin can become more sensitive than those without this condition. Even bed sheets and comforters may feel painful. We understand the materials you place on your skin are important.
Using cashmere-like soft yarns from Japan creates our extremely comfortable and cozy socks. Not only attractive in design, Heat Holders socks and gloves can prove invaluable to people with diabetes, given their undeniably soft touch.
How else do Thermal Socks Help Diabetic Feet?
Cuts and wounds are more of a concern when you have diabetes.
In fact, the CDC recommends diabetics should never go barefoot and always wear socks with shoes. Heat Holders socks can prevent painful injuries as well as restore confidence in those with the condition.
With a wide range of designs and sizes to choose from, we’re proud to stock socks for everyone. Not only can they warm your feet, but socks worn with slippers or shoes lower the chance of injuries to your feet. Allow Heat Holders to become part of your diabetes management.
Will they keep my Feet Dry?
From walking your daily commute to entertaining and exercising, having damp feet and toes never feels good. But for diabetics, there’s a greater need to keep their feet moisture-free.
The American Diabetes Association advises diabetics to wear moisture-wicking socks to avoid foot complications from developing. Made from acrylic, our thermal socks are sure to wick sweat away from your skin for advanced moisture management.
This becomes one less thing to worry about.

"I bought these for my 75 year old father. He is diabetic and has poor circulation. He also has no fat pad on the bottom of his feet, so, being anatomically incorrect his feet are very sensitive.

That these socks can fit this bill is amazing!" - Kristi T.
