Letter to subscribers:
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 8 new drugs and insulinís, 50
new meters, and pumps and countless over the counter aids There will be over
20 new drugs for diabetes within the next 5 years. They will have a
non-invasive meter within 2 years and the cure for Type 1 gets closer and beat
It is crucial for diabetes educators, medical professionals, and patients 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 Ezine (electronic magazine) for
diabetes educators and medical professionals will help keep you informed about
the new treatments, appliances and studies that can make a difference for your
diabetic patients to self manage their diabetes.
