Diabetes accessory products

To make your day-to-day diabetes self-management easier, these products may help.

 

Socks and stockings

There are a wide variety of socks and stockings available that are specially designed to improve your blood circulation, wick away moisture and offer extra cushioning for your feet. 

 

Skin lotions

To combat skin dryness, diabetic foot creams contain ingredients that provide relief while softening the skin.

 

CPAP devices

If you experience any sleep/breathing problems related to your diabetes, you may benefit from a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device that aids in keeping your airways open, so you can rest.

 

Sharps containers

To easily dispose of insulin needles and lancets while you’re on the go or in your home, sharps containers feature locking lids and a biohazard symbol.

 

Adhesive remover wipes

If you’re using a CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) System or an insulin pump, these wipes are made to dissolve and remove any excess adhesive from your skin, protecting it from irritation.

 

Ketone test strips

These strips test for evidence of ketones in your urine. Ketones are an acid produced by the body when it uses fat for energy. Ketones in the urine indicate that the body is not using glucose for energy and you’ve had sustained periods of high blood sugar.

An Edgepark Customer Care Specialist is available by calling 1-888-394-5375 to answer any questions you may have about what accessory products may be right for you.
