Why should I use compression therapy with diabetes?

Diabetes is often associated with venous diseases. Diabetics with venous disease can experience symptoms such as swelling in the legs, ankles, and foot areas, circulation problems, and reduced sensory and pain levels. These symptoms can make it hard to find comfortable and safe compression. If compression stockings are too tight, it can further restrict circulation in the legs and feet. If they are too loose, they might not promote enough blood flow back to the heart. Diabetic compression stockings also need to have proper cushioning due to the increased sensitivity levels some patients may experience. These garments help reduce pressure on boney areas in the feet and toes while still providing the therapeutic compression needed to treat venous issues.

Is it safe to use compression with Peripheral Arterial Disease?

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a progressive circulatory disorder affecting blood flow to the arteries. One out of 6 people over the age of 55 have PAD and 70% of them do not experience symptoms, causing it to oftentimes go undiagnosed. Symptoms can include painful cramping in the legs, weak or numb legs, discoloration in the limbs, and wounds on the legs or feet that won’t heal. Peripheral Arterial Disease is also common in patients with venous diseases. Patients with PAD and venous diseases can have a harder time finding proper compression therapy due to the sensory and circulation problems they may experience. They require special features in compression stockings that are necessary for the proper care.

mediven® angio

The mediven angio was specifically developed for patients with mild to moderate diabetes and Peripheral Arterial Disease. Designed with soft merino wool padding and flat toe seams, the mediven angio protects sensitive areas and bony prominences across the entire foot and ankle, enabling effective and safe vein therapy.mediven angio is the only medical compression stocking whose safety for use for patients with chronic venous disease and concomitant mild- to moderate PAD and/or diabetes mellitus has been scientifically investigated and confirmed in a clinical study. It was proven that no skin lesions (for example, pressure marks, constrictions) occurred and that the blood flow in the smallest vessels (= microcirculation including oxygen saturation) remained stable under compression.1
