Southfield, MI (PRWEB) September 26, 2010
Diabetes is one of the fastest growing medical conditions in the United States and across the globe. 24 million people are estimated to have diabetes in the U.S, which accounts for approximately 7.8 percent of the population. A large portion of these figures are attributable to Type II Diabetes, which is typically diagnosed in individuals later in life with other health challenges.
The steep rise in diagnoses of the condition, coupled with the high cost of managing diabetes, has created a greater need for affordable testing supplies and equipment. This is particularly true in today's world with high levels unemployment and record numbers of uninsured persons. Of course, even those people who have insurance or Medicare coverage may find that high deductibles, co-pays, or having to pay out-of-pocket for non-covered medical products, becomes a financial challenge.
While many people still seem content driving to the pharmacy for supplies, Diatic Medical is a new generation diabetic supply company that delivers products directly to its consumers’ homes. By delivering its products, instead of owning a physical store, Diatic is able to greatly reduce the overall cost of doing business, and in turn sell products at far lower prices.
The goal of Diatic Medical is to not only ensure diabetics have access to affordable supplies, but also to provide people with the resources to access and review the latest information on diabetic topics. Weight loss, diabetic diets, and exercise plans are all things diabetics must actively manage to help control and minimize the effects of diabetes. In addition, by utilizing new media on the web, including blogs, and social networking sites, Diatic provides an environment for diabetics to educate themselves and find support through a community of people with similar needs.
As healthcare costs skyrocket, and access to affordable supplies becomes more difficult, a growing number of diabetics may simply decide not to test as recommended by their physicians. Unfortunately, there are consequences for both the individual and the healthcare system when prompt treatment is not received. Uncontrolled diabetes can contribute to secondary health issues, including kidney disease, stroke, high blood pressure, heart disease, and many other complications, which make the overall benefits of treating diabetes early unquestionable.
Diatic Medical proves that options do exist for those operating under a strict budget.
