Someone you know — a loved one, a co-worker, maybe a next-door neighbor — has diabetes. More than 29 million Americans have diabetes, and another 86 million adults in the United States are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Managing diabetes isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. And for the people who are at high risk for developing diabetes, there are many lifestyle changes they can make to lower their risk.
At Foremost Medical Equipment, a global medical supplies company in based in Rochester, New York, the friendly and knowledgeable staff have more than 13 years of experience providing customers in the U.S. and around the world with medical devices to manage their diabetes. During November — American Diabetes Month — the team at Foremost Medical Equipment wants to raise awareness about diabetes risk factors and help their customers make healthy lifestyle changes.
Several risk factors have been associated with Type 2 diabetes, including having a family history of diabetes, being overweight, eating an unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and high blood pressure. You can lower your risk by more than half by making small changes, such as eating healthier and reducing portion sizes, increasing physical activity every day, and losing weight.
According to the American Diabetes Association, every 23 seconds, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes, which means they’ll need to stock up on diabetes medical supplies, such as insulin pumps, glucose meters, diabetic test strips, and lancet devices. If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, the experts at Foremost Medical Equipment can help you order the necessary medical supplies to stay healthy.
The American Diabetes Month 2016 campaign is “This Is Diabetes.” Share your story — and stock up on your medical devices — with Foremost Medical Equipment.
