HealthyOutcomes.com helps diabetics live better with vital health information and free merchandise

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 12, 2009--The International Diabetes Foundation estimates 344 million people in the world are at risk for Type 2 Diabetes. That's equal to the population of the United States, if you count California twice. 285 million already suffer from the disease, a growing epidemic.

An essential new resource for diabetics is Healthy Outcomes

Healthy Outcomes provides important wellness information to diabetics with a creative and innovative platform. With more than 600 educational modules, information on drugs and medical devices, videos, and games, Healthy Outcomes makes learning about diabetes less like a chore and more like fun. The site also connects users to Certified Diabetes Educators and Diabetologists--a key personal component in providing correct and practical help that is crucial to a diabetic's quality of life. In exchange for learning about diabetes, patients earn points, which are then redeemable for free brand name merchandise that diabetics want and need.

Anyone can join the Healthy Outcomes community, diabetic or not. For taking just two surveys, a participant can earn enough points for a free glucose meter or a box of finger-pricking lancets (shipping is always free). Healthy Outcomes has partnered with companies including Medtronic, Animas (a unit of Johnson & Johnson), and Abbott to provide merchandise for diabetes management. Millions of diabetics rely on these items daily.

Healthy Outcomes, a business of Healthy Outcomes Incentive Systems was founded by David Kliff, himself a type 1 diabetic. Mr. Kliff realized that diabetics craved interesting ways to learn about their disease. "Like millions of people, I deal with diabetes every day. It's a fact of life," says Kliff. "But it doesn't have to be boring." Mr. Kliff believes that the incentives provide the extra push to encourage patients to learn.
