Diabetes Informational Site Offers Free Glucose Monitor
Date:9/28/2009

A new offer extended to diabetic visitors is a way for diabeticlive.com (www.diabeticlive.com) to extend a proposition of life balance for guest's personal health management plans and goals.

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 28, 2009 -- In a time when there is debate on the future of health care in America there is also concern among diabetics and health care providers about the maintenance programs associated with diabetes. This dynamic has inspired diabetic live to provide visitors with a free blood glucose meter to assist in their daily managed care plan.

diabeticlive site owner, developer and Type 1 diabetic, Christopher Berry understands the crucial need for tight glucose control, "As a very active golfer I can't imagine going back to life without a blood glucose meter. It frees me up to play the game and enjoy life in a way that has not always been possible."

Berry developed diabetic live in 2006 as a premier online destination for information and resources specifically related to diabetes. Berry states, "The site is populated with articles about diabetic issues along with the latest news and advances in care options."

Along with weekly content Berry provides an opt-in newsletter and utilizes strategic partnerships to offer quotes on health and life insurance to diabetic guests. Berry says, "As a diabetic I am always thinking about what I would want in an informational website like diabetic live. That's what continues to drive this site forward."

The offer of a free glucose meter is part of that commitment. The use of this device helps diabetics quickly adjust their daily intake of food and insulin. Mismanagement of blood glucose has been linked to accelerations in diabetic related issues including kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, blindness, high blood pressure and potential lower limb amputation. Berry notes, "There are side effects associated with both high and low blood sugar. Getting a quick start on management allows diabetics to realize more normal days without so many highs and lows."

It is estimated that in 1999 there were as many as 50% of diabetics who remained undiagnosed. Most recent figures indicate that number has dropped to below 25%. It is further estimated that diabetes affects roughly 8% of the population, but medical professionals expect that number to rise significantly over the next decade. "Blood glucose monitor's offer diabetics a life enhancing option by helping keep the body in balance. Extending this free offer is my way of helping others find that balance." Berry concludes, "The launch of this program is providing impressive interest among our guests."
