A Custom Fit for Your Feet? ( Diabetes )

A Custom Fit for Your Feet? ( Diabetes )

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 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 other diabetes-related foot problems. A podiatrist or other health care provider who can examine your feet can advise you about this. You may need a referral to a podiatrist.
