If you have diabetes taking care of your feet (and shoes) is essential.
With diabetes there’s a lot to take care of – and nothing is more important than taking the best possible care of your feet.
Diabetes causes poor circulation and “neuropathy” – a condition that makes your feet numb to a blister, cut, ingrown toenail and infection. Because you don’t feel it, an infection can get worse and even end in amputation. Fortunately this can be avoided by regular foot and shoe care.
Because your shoes harbour harmful bacteria and fungus, the last thing you want to do is put your foot in a germ-filled shoe. Because the SteriShoe sanitiser kills up to 99.9% of the bacteria in shoes that can cause foot infections, regular use of the SteriShoe sanitiser can virtually eliminate the infection-causing bacteria and fungus growing in your shoes.
Tip: Nothing can take the place of regular physician visits and daily self-check exams. You want to make sure you have shoes that are specially designed for diabetics to relieve pressure and prevent foot wounds like blisters, corns, or calluses. Keep your feet dry since most harmful organisms are water borne, and use SteriShoe daily.
SteriShoe is clinically proven to kill up to 99.9% of the germs with the power of ultraviolet (UVC) light. UVC light is very versatile and can be used for destroying harmful micro-organisms on all surfaces. SteriShoe is so effective it’s earned the American Podiatric Medicine seal of approval.
