With technology, trends, research and news concerning diabetes revolving around the clock, we will strive every day to make our visitors’ experience meaningful and rewarding.
Mount Laurel, NJ (Vocus) February 2, 2010
Food Sciences Corporation announced today the launch of a new full-service diabetes website – http://www.DiabetesCare.net – which caters to the entire diabetes community, including those seeking self-care information and solutions, as well as diabetes caregivers and providers looking for a one-stop resource for their patients.
Unlike other diabetes websites that give their visitors occasional news about the latest trends in diabetes, some recipes and perhaps a few basics about managing their disease, DiabetesCare.net instead focuses on daily breaking news showcasing the latest trends and studies on the disease, plus offers helpful tools to engage visitors in not only managing their diabetes, but also showing them all the daily progress they are making.
DiabetesCare.net’s tools include a Nutrition Tracker, with 37,000+ food items for tracking daily food intake and carbohydrates consumed; an Exercise Tracker that tracks over 80 different daily exercise activities for visitors; a Blood Glucose Tracker, and a BMI (Body Mass Index) Calculator.
And coming in Q1 2010, a “Health Assessment” tool will be added to DiabetesCare.net’s library of tools to help its visitors work towards a healthier overall lifestyle.
Steeped in daily interaction with its audience via social marketing outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, DiabetesCare.net also has active blogs and forums to encourage dialogue amongst visitors in an effort to foster sharing, understanding and knowledge of their disease, which according to the American Diabetes Association’s 2007 Fact Sheet, afflicts 23.6 million children and adults in the United States or 7.8% of the population.
And yes, DiabetesCare.net will also feature recipes for its visitors -- a key component for them as they look for ways to manage their diabetes -- plus helpful short- and long-form videos with tips for people living with diabetes and much more.
Lastly, DiabetesCare.net, complete with a medical panel that regularly reviews the material on the website and suggests improvements to its tools, is free to all users and contains no commercial advertising whatsoever, which means no bias, just useful information and support.
“This website is a one-stop resource with the sole goal of helping people with diabetes -- and the healthcare professionals that help them with their care -- gain the knowledge they need to learn how to manage their disease,” Food Sciences Corporation President Robert Schwartz says of DiabetesCare.net. “With technology, trends, research and news concerning diabetes revolving around the clock, we will strive every day to make our visitors’ experience meaningful and rewarding.”
Food Sciences Corporation Director of Marketing Lynda Lewis adds, “The value and support our website provides is, and will continue to be, extraordinary. We provide the highest level of support, tools, information and all other resources needed to help individuals in the diabetes community feel like individuals, manage their disease and have access to the knowledge they need to live long healthy, fulfilling lives.”
