(PRWEB) November 7, 2005
November 2005 is Diabetes Awareness Month. Canadian Internet Pharmacy intermediary LePharmacy announced that they will donate a percentage of sales revenue to the American Diabetes Association for the balance of 2005. “We recognize the need to support Diabetic research and to provide those who are living with diabetes, the greatest possible savings. Since federal funding for research has not kept pace with the increased prevalence of the disease, we have a corporate responsibility to contribute to the prevention, cure and treatment of diabetes,” said Ross McKinlay, Director of Sales for http://www.LePharmacy.com.
The Canadian health system provides brand name Glucophage and the generic Metformin through Canadian pharmacies for less than half the price than your average US drugstore. The 50% cost reduction from Canada can save a family hundreds of dollars a year.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.
There are 20.8 million people in the United States, or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 14.6 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 6.2 million people (or nearly one-third) are unaware that they have the disease. Type 2 diabetes is the most common and accounts for almost 90 percent of all diagnosed cases and was previously called adult onset diabetes. Type 1 diabetes accounts for the balance and usually occurs in children and young adults.
