Diabetes has become a major public health problem and grows rapidly in the most developed countries of the world. Beside genetic and environmental factors, lifestyle habits play an important role in the development and progression of diabetes mellitus. About 15% of diabetic patients develop a foot ulcer in need of medical care according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Infection is a serious complication and it is the major responsible cause of lower limb amputation. This paper deals with the possible protection from diabetic foot infection with the socks made of modified cotton yarn by natural minerals and active carbon. Ten diabetic patients - 3 IDDM, 4 NIDDM and 3 GDM, tested in vivo fabric hand according to AATCC EP 5 guidelines and sweating evan after 15 washing cycles to accomplish the highest possible level its comfort of diabetic patients.
