Diabetes is an epidemic, and there is great interest from the corporate world to bring new products and treatments to market. There are over 4900 studies going on for new drugs, appliances and treatments for diabetes. The information that is available is astronomical.
Since 1995 the medical industry has introduced more than 8 new drugs and insulins, 50 new meters, and pumps and countless over the counter aids. There will be over 20 new drugs submitted to the FDA for diabetes within the next 5 years.
It is crucial for medical professionals to have the most current information available. Because 98% of diabetes management has to come from the patient, if we can make it easier for them, they will have more success in controlling their diabetes.
In addition, the shift to outcomes-based diabetes management has put an extra strain on our time and increased our need for knowledge.
Since we are all so busy it makes it very difficult, almost impossible, to stay current on the new approaches, medications, meters, etc, for our patients.
We are offering you a free newsletter. This e-newsletter for diabetes educators and medical professionals will help keep you informed about the new treatments, devices and studies that can make a difference for your diabetic patients to self-manage their diabetes.
