What's the point of "diabetic" socks? What are they supposed to do?

I use them because the top third of the stock has looser elastic knit than regular socks and find them more comfortable.

They're less tight without bunching to encourage blood flow and prevent pressure spots , and generally made of materials that wick away moisture.

People with Diabetes have poor circulation especially in the limbs. My relatives feet look like they are disintegrating.

the joke is that non-diabetic people prefer tight constricting uncomfortable socks.

I thought tight socks improved circulation by pushing blood back up from the feet towards the heart, to counteract gravity, hence compression socks?
