Custom made shoes

Most people with diabetes do not need custom-made shoes. However, if you are at risk for amputation, you may need a special shoe—for example, one with extra depth or special inserts. You are considered to be at risk for an amputation if you have already had a toe or partial- foot amputation, if you have a foot deformity, if you have had an ulcer that is now healed, or if you have diabetes-related foot problems. a podiatrist or other health care provider who can examine your feet would be the best person to advise you about this. A referral to a podiatrist may be necessary.
