If you are diabetic, be sure to wear loose-fitting socks and stockings. Special socks are available for diabetics that have more stretch around the ankles and legs, to provide better comfort and circulation, as well as, to help keep your feet and legs healthier. Good circulation is imperative for the legs and feet of diabetics. Check your blood sugar before you go to bed, and if it's low, bring it up with a quick snack. This allows you to ensure that your levels are steady throughout the night.
