How can Diathrive help you manage your diabetes and save money?
New Research Shows Skyrocketing Diabetes Costs
The American Diabetes Association released new research last year estimating the total costs of diagnosed diabetes at $245 billion in 2012. This represented a 41% increase over the last time cost were measured in 2007.
What does this mean for you?
The American Diabetes Association study showed that people with diagnosed diabetes incur average medical expenditures for diabetes of $7,900. Those same people incur average total medical expenditures of about $13,700, which is 2.3 times the national average. Failure to control your diabetes results in even higher medical costs.
In addition to monetary costs, not managing your diabetes costs you in many other ways. People who don’t control their diabetes suffer the following:
- Lower energy
- More fatigue
- Feel thirsty more frequently
- Need to urinate more frequently
- Heal from surgeries and other wounds much less quickly
- Have higher risk of heart attack, stroke, eye problems that lead to blindness, nerve damage, kidney problems, and teeth and gum problems
