No, Diabetes is a contraindication.
Diabetes can lead to problems of the circulation and to nerve damage, which can in turn lead to ulceration of the extremities or poor healing of wounds. Because of this it is sensible for diabetics to take special care when treating themselves for similar situations. We thus advise diabetics not to use Compeed plasters unless they have consulted a physician.
