NY Times Story on Diabetes – Featuring Dr. Ron Loeppke


“Diabetes is the noninfectious epidemic of our time,” said Dr. Ronald Loeppke, vice chairman of U.S. Preventive Medicine, a company that offers wellness and prevention programs to employers and individuals.

That’s the background for a story today in the NY Times (Protecting Yourself From the Cost of Type 2 Diabetes) which also makes the following key points

  1. Get screened early and annually
  2. Work hard and smart to manage your diabetes and save on supplies
  3. Try the Older drugs first
  4. Adopt Healthier habits
  5. Find Support

For more information about Diabetes you can also visit the American Diabetes Association.  We have a lot of work to do to turn this epidemic around. 

You will also note a link to the right for the Stepout Walk to Fight Diabetes fundraiser which a team of U.S. Preventive Medicine employees just partipicated in.  You can still help out. 🙂
