Millions of Americas suffer with diabetes everyday. Many individuals with this disease are learning that the best therapy may be found in a Walk-In Tub.

Healing Effects of Warm Water

The key to treatment of diabetes is constant care of your body and taking preventative measures against further damage. A study from the New England Journal of Medicine found that patients with Type II diabetes who used warm water for therapy reported a 13% reduction in blood sugar levels, improved sleep and an increase in their overall sense of well being.

Better Quality of living through Walk-In Tubs

Bathing is one of the few moments in our lives when we can truly relax and feel free of pain and worry. When bathing becomes uncomfortable or difficult, it's time to invest in your health and consider a walk-in tub. Owning a walk-in tub can ease the pain of diabetes and even keep it from becoming more severe by reducing stress. Research has shown that stress reduction may indirectly improve blood sugar control.

A few of the advantages of having a Walk-In Tub for diabetes management:

  • Improved circulation aids in immune system effectiveness and wound healing.
  • For those unable to exercise but seeking relief and comfort, tub therapy increases blood flow to muscles which may help insulin-mediated glucose uptake.
  • Your walk-in tub provides a comfortable venue for soaking sore feet.
  • Step into your tub any time you want to bathe, easing the strain on joints and tender muscles in the thighs and back.
  • Air and water massage helps stimulate the skin where it needs the most care.
