“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
- Get screened early and annually
- Work hard and smart to manage your diabetes and save on supplies
- Try the Older drugs first
- Adopt Healthier habits
- 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. 🙂
