Educational Video Series Released for American Diabetes Month

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- This week begins American Diabetes Month® - a time devoted to diabetes awareness and education that coincides with the launch of a new campaign by the American Diabetes Association called StopDiabetes(SM).

The American Diabetes Association and one of its National Strategic Partners, Liberty Medical Supply, Inc., have posted a collection of online educational videos to give diabetes patients practical tips and advice for living with the disease and avoiding its serious complications. The videos are available for viewing on in the "learn" section and Topics covered include symptoms and risks of diabetes, weight management tips, exercise tips, an overview of insulin delivery methods, tips on caring for a parent, and understanding the ABCs of diabetes - A1C, blood pressure, and cholesterol measurements.

According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes has reached epidemic proportions with nearly 24 million children and adults currently living with diabetes and another 57 million Americans with pre-diabetes. The disease leads to life-threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness and amputation.

The Internet video collection features Dr. Sue Kirkman, vice president of Clinical Affairs of the American Diabetes Association. It is sponsored and produced by Liberty Medical, a Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) company.

"In observation of American Diabetes Month we wanted to raise awareness about how to effectively manage diabetes whether for oneself or as a caregiver. We encourage everyone dealing with diabetes to access and share this series of educational videos with others," said Laizer Kornwasser, Medco senior vice president and Liberty Medical president. "At Liberty, we are committed to providing comprehensive care to people with diabetes so that they may live a better life. Together, with the American Diabetes Association, we hope that this video series advances that goal."

"Education is a key component to the Stop Diabetes movement," commented George Huntley, Chair of the Board, American Diabetes Association. "The more Americans know about living a healthy lifestyle and properly managing their diabetes, the closer we come to stopping diabetes once and for all."
