ScienceBased Health Announces the Launch of Diavis(TM), a New Dietary Supplement for the 81 Million Americans With or at Risk for Diabetes
Date:11/10/2008

ATLANTA, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) 2008 Annual Meeting -- ScienceBased Health, a leading provider of premium nutraceuticals for eye health, today announced the launch of DiaVis, a specialized dietary supplement to support the visual and overall health of those with diabetes.

24 million Americans -- 8% of the population and nearly 25% of those 60 and older -- currently suffer from diabetes. When added to the 57 million Americans with pre-diabetes, an astounding 81 million Americans either have the condition or are considered at risk according to 2007 prevalence data from the CDC. Pre-diabetes, characterized by elevated blood sugar levels, is a precursor of adult-onset diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. As a result, blood glucose levels become too high. Those with diabetes are at an increased risk for developing a number of complications, such as heart disease, stroke and retinopathy. Retinopathy, estimated to affect up to 80% of those with diabetes over time, is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness.

Research has identified nutrients that may be low in diabetics due to inadequate nutrient intake, increased excretion, and altered nutrient requirements due to higher oxidative stress or use of diabetes-related medications. Some studies have found diabetics and those with retinopathy to be low in antioxidants. Antioxidants have been found to play an important role in helping to combat oxidative stress, which plays a role in developing diabetic complications.

DiaVis delivers a blend of key antioxidants, including Pycnogenol(R), and other nutrients found to play a role in helping to combat oxidative stress and inflammation, and that tend to be marginally low in those with diabetes. Additionally, DiaVis delivers ingredients found to play a role in normal glucose metabolism and retinal vessel health.
