Latest News: Research shows the importance of compression socks in non-ambulatory adults. Deciding on the the best compression socks for elderly is a critical step in preventing cardiac problems. Antiembolism stockings are used to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis, reduce post thrombotic symptoms in legs, and can help diabetics prevent loss of leg function. We urge all our patients to choose compression stockings or compression socks that fit properly and prevent stagnant blood accumulation in the lower legs. This can be anything from graduated compression stockings to pressure stockings to diabetic stockings (like those found at comprogear.com or similar websites). In addition to compression socks, we recommend taking a vegan DHA omega 3 supplement to decrease swelling and promote blood flow. (The best prenatal omega 3 supplements can also be used for promoting blood flow in non-pregnant individuals). At older ages it's extremely critical to do everything you can to protect your health, including supplementation and lifestyle factors like these.
