The Full Story
In 2019, diabetes was the direct cause of 1.5 million deaths. Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is an important hormone that regulates blood sugar. Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar, is a complication of uncontrolled diabetes and over time this contributes to serious damage in many of the body's systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels. Lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise contribute greatly to the slowing and reversal of these detrimental effects however often times pharmacologic intervention is necessary to regain control.
In addition to diabetes being a difficult disease state to manage from a medical provider standpoint, the relative expenses associated with diabetes treatment and care can be extremely burdensome and sometimes unaffordable. The cost of insulin, blood sugar monitors, pen needles, syringes, medications and more also continue to rise every year. These difficulties are all presented as barriers to adequate and effective healthcare
Access to adequate and affordable healthcare will always be a basic human right. Providing greater access to high quality healthcare and affordable treatment options are how we can work to positively influence change in our community, daily, that will lead directly to better health outcomes, decreased mortality and less worrisome trips to the doctor's office. The most effective way to contribute to positive change and community wellness is to effectively remove as many of these boundaries as possible. We are building a team as well as amassing resources that will directly support the elimination of these extraneous difficulties.
