Date:5/12/2009

cise. Financial constraints are also a part of the issue. The survey shows that:

  • More than one in four admit to limiting supplies, skipping doctor visits and taking medications less often to reduce costs associated with diabetes management
  • More than one in four Indianapolis residents cited the need to give up other expenses in order to continue paying for the cost of diabetes management
  • Twenty one percent have delayed going to the doctor when sick to save money
  • More than half report that the cost of fresh produce and gyms in the area are barriers to better managing their weight

"Motivational education is a powerful tool in empowering people with diabetes to better manage their disease," said Dr. David Marrero, J.O. Ritchey Professor of Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine. "The TCOYD conference not only features national and local media experts discussing steps to better diabetes management, but also provides a sense of community for people who are living with diabetes, allowing them to connect with others who are facing similar issues."

The annual TCOYD conference and health fair will take place on May 30, 2009, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Indiana Convention Center and will feature national and local medical experts in diabetes care discussing the latest developments in the treatment of diabetes, the complications of the disease, psychological barriers to controlling diabetes and nutritional issues. Pre-registration for the conference is recommended and is $25 per person. On-site registration begins May 30, 2009, at 7:30 a.m., and costs $30. Financial assistance is available by calling TCOYD. To register or get more information, call (800) 998-2693 or visit www.tcoyd.org.
