These benefits can contribute significantly to managing and preventing diabetes by promoting healthier eating habits, better blood sugar control, weight management, and overall well-being.

Special footwear with features such as cushioning, support, and flexibility that can benefit individuals with diabetes are available to patients. These shoes often prioritize comfort, stability, and proper fit, which are important considerations for individuals who may have foot sensitivity, neuropathy, or other foot-related complications associated with diabetes.
