Better Health Through Bathing: Diabetes

Better Health Through Bathing: Diabetes

Those living with diabetes are constantly faced with troubling and dangerous complications that come with having poorer blood circulation. Many of these such as fatigue, swelling, numbness, kidney problems, increased blood pressure, and cramps, all of which interfere with daily living. Medications may help, but they often come with their own side effects such as nausea and headaches.


One of the safest ways diabetics can help improve their blood circulation is to take regular, warm baths. They help dilate the blood vessels, which increases blood flow and improves circulation. Diabetics, in particular, can benefit from advanced tub technology that ensures they are getting the most therapeutic benefits from every bathing session.

Here are some ways that Safe Steps Walk-In Tubs can help people with diabetes:

Safe Step Walk-In Tubs contain a Dual Hydrotherapy Massage System, which combines whirlpool technology with air massage. This means that every area of the body is targeted to relieve muscle tension, joint pain, and improved circulation, even the deepest muscles that are the most difficult to relax.


Where regular tubs are difficult to stay warm, Safe Step Walk-In Tubs have a lower back and seat-heating system with a safety shut-off feature to maintain a comfortable and consistent temperature throughout the bathing experience. The warm temperature provides on-going circulation benefits that last significantly longer than regular tubs.

When blood sugar levels are too high in someone with diabetes, light brown and scaly skin patches known as dermopathy can appear. These are prone to infections and can be difficult to treat. One of the last things someone with diabetes need to think about when they’re bathing to ease their pain is whether or not the tub and water are clean. Each Safe Step Walk-In Tub has a “Safe Water” cleaning system that maintains water purity, and also a mold-resistant sanitary gel coat to reduce the risk of bacterial or fungal infections.


Diabetes is a lifelong disease that requires a lifelong investment in managing its symptoms. Safe Step Walk-In Tubs are one of the safest, easiest and most affordable ways to help improve circulation and increase quality of life.
