Charleston, WV (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
Online USA Doctors, virtual doctors create a new approach to help those with diabetes improve diabetes overall by utilizing specialty formulated prescription-grade medication and a personalized doctor created health plan.
As obesity trends continue to explode, virtual doctors, such as Online USA Doctors are able to help provide a flexible, efficient solution for cost-conscious consumers with their new diabetic management plan.
According to a report written by researchers at GlobalData, the United States will continue to hold first place as the developed world’s most obese nation through 2022. Obesity is a difficult health issue to manage, especially with the scheduling and financial obstacles that most Americans face today. Virtual doctors present a timely and effective solution to the factors which make it difficult for modern Americans to manage obesity.
The report, released in August 2013, looked at nine major countries and found that obesity would increase in all of them over the next 20 years. The United States was projected to experience the greatest increase in obesity rates, with a projected 113 million obese Americans by 2022. Today, 60-70% of the U.S. population is either overweight or obese, putting them at risk for heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and diabetes. According to the American Heart Association, obesity affects nearly 78 million adults and 13 million children in the U.S. today.
Online USA Doctors medical director, Dr. Shelton states, "Combating diabetes takes a comprehensive, doctor driven approach and a personalized health plan to help improve diabetic health overall." Online USA Doctors offers a new approach in that the health plan created is specific to each individual based on the latest clinical and medical journals relating to diabetes health management.
Alison Carpenter, an analyst from GlobalData, commented on the United States’ capacity to address this trend, stating, “Unfortunately, it will be difficult for public health organizations and policymakers to aim effective control measures at these populations to contain this growing epidemic.” The health care field will face many problems in the coming years that will make it difficult to provide adequate health care coverage to all Americans who need it. Fewer medical doctors are graduating from medical school than ever before, creating a shortage of qualified medical professionals. The population of the U.S. will double by 2050, causing an explosive growth in Americans seeking health care coverage.
Consumers are increasingly pressed by work, family, and financial commitments. These commitments make it difficult to commit to constant doctor’s appointments and medical assessments. Many of the diseases associated with obesity, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and hormonal imbalances, require only slight monitoring, occasional lab tests, and diet and lifestyle changes. These routine medical services often provide the support consumers need to manage their illnesses and, with proper lifestyle and nutritional counseling, eliminate them altogether.
Virtual doctors, such as Online USA Doctors provide a solution to this problem by offering personalized medical treatment by board-certified M.D.’s for a fraction of the cost of in-person medical treatment. One of the leaders in the industry, OnlineUSADoctors.com offers comprehensive health care, including proprietary alternative health supplements and exclusive diagnostic tools. By providing these services, OnlineUSADoctors.com presents a solution that saves consumers the considerable time normally needed to undergo medical care and the significant sums of money that routine medical health insurance requires.
Through video or phone consultations, physicians diagnose illnesses and have the freedom to order laboratory tests, prescribe medication, or make a referral to a local physician for follow-up care when necessary. Medical doctors use tools such as the My OnlineUSADoctors Health Quiz, a cutting-edge diagnostic tool that often identifies underlying medical conditions which were missed by previous clinicians. Consumers are also entitled to unlimited e-mail access to medical doctors to answer questions and get lifestyle and medical counseling.
Through offering such comprehensive medical health insurance services, all provided by board-certified medical doctors, the annual cost of health coverage for most consumers will be cut by an estimated minimum of $2,000 per person. In addition, the flexibility of being able to schedule a consultation at a time of the consumer’s choosing adds significant value to the consumer’s bottom line. Considering the circumstances of modern-day life, virtual doctors are best positioned to offer the kind of support that overweight people need to manage their obesity.
