Diabetics have many medications to treat their disorder. Unfortunately excessive intestinal gas is a side effect of most medications. The Flatulence Deodorizer is a non-drug solution for gas odor.

October 30, 2006 October is National Diabetes Month, designed to draw attention to this metabolism disorder which will progress over time to more serious problems unless it is managed properly.

An estimated 16 million people in the United States of America are known to have diabetes, with 40% not even knowing they have diabetes and about 1 million of these being insulin dependent.

How diabetes is treated depends on the type and severity of disease. One or more oral medications, or perhaps even insulin, will need to be used. Metformin is a drug that is currently used to help control blood glucose levels in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Unfortunately the side effects for about one third of patients on Metformin experience gastrointestinal disturbances, including nausea, flatulence, and diarrhea.

A partner in this fight for a normal life is Flat-D Innovations, Inc. Excessive gas and diarrhea from the side effects of Metformin made everyday life uncomfortable for Vince Palenik of Chicago and the people around him. He came across Flat-D after doing a search on the internet, and decided to give it a try. It's been a lifesaver, and he says, "It has been a real godsend for me and those around me". The Flatulence Deodorizer has improved the quality of his life.

Flat-D Innovations, a Cedar Rapids-based company has tackled the odors of Flatulence with the help of technology. This patented product (Doctor Recommended and FDA Registered) has been designed to assist people that suffer from dietary and medical conditions such as Colitis, Crohn's, Diabetes, IBS, and Lactose Intolerance. Some of these conditions as well as medications such as Antivirals, and certain Antibiotics cause excessive gas or flatulence. Flatulence or intestinal gas leads to embarrassment.

Flat-D Innovations, Inc. manufactures a flatulence (gas) deodorizing device, called the Flatulence Deodorizer, that will eliminate the odors associated with flatulence. The product is a thin (1/16th of an inch) activated charcoal fabric pad that is placed in the underwear next to the buttocks.

Brian Conant, of Mililani, Hawaii ….the inventor of this patented product says, "The Flatulence Deodorizer is the simplest, non-drug solution for the most disgusting of odors (flatulence)". They have invented a safe for the skin (hypoallergenic), effective (immediate results), cost effective (less than $13), comfortable (thin and flexible), reusable (washable) and least intrusive method (no drugs or medications) for dealing with this embarrassing problem. Now, those with diabetes have a solution to their most embarrassing symptom, Flatulence.
