  3. 3. Diabetes in the Gulf Area According to the International Diabetes Federation(IDF), five of the 10 countries where diabetes is mostprevalent are located in the six-nation Gulf CooperationCouncil (GCC). Kuwait is the third while Qatar is sixth, Saudi Arabiaseventh, Bahrain eighth and the United Arab Emiratesis the Tenth. Lebanon comes in fifth and the rest of the top 10 arePacific island nations with much smaller populations.Care & Cure Bahrain 3
  4. 4. Diabetes and Diabetic Foot One of every 10 diabetic patients developdiabetic foot problem. Diabetes can cause double trouble to the feet.Care & Cure Bahrain 4
  5. 5. Diabetes and Diabetic Foot First, diabetes can reduce blood flow to thefeet, depriving feet of oxygen and nutrients.This makes it more prone to complications likeblisters, sores, and cuts. Second, the diabetic nerve damage called“Peripheral Neuropathy” can cause numbnessin the feet.Care & Cure Bahrain 5
  6. 6. Diabetes and Diabetic Foot When patient cant feel cuts and blisters, she/he ismore likely to get sores and infections. If patient does not notice or treat the sores, they canbecome deeply infected, and lead to high possibility ofamputation. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy can also cause sharppain in the feet. Patient may become sensitive to thelightest touch, like the sheets on bed.Care & Cure Bahrain 6

  9. 9.  Looks like regular socks and used by diabeticpatients to keep their foot healthy. It is a non-binding and non-elastic sock whichis designed so as to not constrict the foot orleg or affect the blood circulation.Care & Cure Bahrain 9
  10. 10.  They are manufactured from high performancefiber with Nano powders that has antibacterialproperties and can reduce the risk of germsgrowth. The socks’ Nano Fibers (Dr. FreeTM) areregistered trade mark.Care & Cure Bahrain 10
  11. 11.  These Nano powders are treated with FarInfrared Rays (NanoRed) to improve the bloodcirculation and keep your feet warm. The fabric can also provide the function ofminus ions, which can relax nervous emotionto keep the foot healthy.Care & Cure Bahrain 11
  12. 12.  Cool Best is a fiber with the function of specificcross (+) section for speeding sweat awayfrom skin to the outer surface of fabric to makeskin feel dry, refreshing and comfortable. Cool Best helps to decrease the incidence oftoes fungal infection through its mechanism.Care & Cure Bahrain 12
  13. 13.  The designs of the socks have seamless toe-closures to reduce pressure and blistering andcushioned area at the pressure points to reducepain. The Socks are white in color that is preferable forpeople with wounds or sores, as this could alertwearers with compromised sensation to a drainingwound.Care & Cure Bahrain 13

  18. 18. Study Abstract Objective: To assess Acceptability of specially designed socks to providepressure relief in neuropathic diabetic foot Study Type: Longitudinal multicenter patient evaluation study Population: 86 neuropathic diabetic patients: The results: 85% good or very good Patient satisfaction, 12% average and 3% poor. 10 out of 11 ulcers healed during this period. Intention to continue wearing the socks, most or all of the time, wasexpressed by 84% of patients. Conclusions: Experimental socks are acceptable and have high level ofpatient satisfaction and inexpensive addition to existing methods ofprotecting the high-risk insensitive diabetic footCare & Cure Bahrain 18

  20. 20. Study Abstract Objective: effect of sock fiber composition on the frequency and size ofblistering events in long-distance runners. Study Type: A Longitudinal double-blind Population: Thirty-five long-distance runners participated in this study. Two different socks were tested, which were identical in every aspect ofconstruction except fiber composition: 100% acrylic fibers, and 100%natural cotton fibers. The results: Acrylic fiber socks were associated with fewer blisteringevents and smaller blisters when compared directly to cotton fibersocks.Care & Cure Bahrain 20

  22. 22. Study Abstract A total of 30 neuropathic outpatients with foot anhydrosis were randomizedinto: Group A, treated with sock with the nanocapsules Group B wearing only socks without nanocapsules Patients were blindly evaluated with a clinical score, hygrometry,transepidermal water loss, skin temperature, and skin hardness at baselineand after 6 weeks. Group A significantly (P< .05) improved in all the parameters evaluated.Group B showed no changes at the end of the treatment No adverse events were recorded in both groups during the study. Conclusion: The use of hydrating agents carried by nanocapsules-loadedsocks is safe and effective for the neuropathic diabetic foot.Care & Cure Bahrain 22

  24. 24. Summary of the Study The available evidence suggests that people withdiabetes who have “normal” feet should be able towear socks they find to be comfortable. Socks should fit well, without constricting cuffs,lumps, or uncomfortable seams. Therefore, fittedsocks are preferable to tube socks. Lighter-colored socks may alert wearers withcompromised sensation to a draining wound.Care & Cure Bahrain 24
  25. 25. Summary of the Study Cont. Patients who are at risk for ulcer development becauseof decreased pressure sensation should be advised towear densely padded socks. Herring and Richie found that padded acrylic socksproduce less moisture at the skin surface and lessblistering in runners than do cotton socks. Educators should recommend their patients to wearpadded acrylic socks when engaging in vigorousexercise.Care & Cure Bahrain 25
