Let's talk a little bit about the philosophy behind what we sell here at Affordable Diabetic, where we are focused on helping so many people deal with the burden of diabetes.
First of all, that involves understanding the nature of this illness and how you treat chronic disease. Diabetes is not a broken leg, or a kind of temporary condition that you heal with an antibiotic or some other pill. It's a fundamental disruption of your blood sugar levels that takes ongoing care and treatment.
With that in mind, there are a few major components to diabetes care, especially at the earlier stages, where intervention can still mitigate a lot of the effects of the disease.
One of these, of course, is diet. Nutrition plays a critical role, and since the disease is based on blood sugar levels, controlling your diet can help you control those underlying blood sugar levels and build toward better holistic health. To put it another way, excellent diet and home care can delay or eliminate the need for kidney dialysis or more immediate interventions – and for many of those suffering from diabetes, that can be good news.
Using Self-Check Equipment
Along with that, there's also the goal to fundamentally monitor your blood sugar levels over time. This is another incredibly important aspect of home care. It doesn't happen in a doctor's office. Although the provider can check your blood sugar levels with lab work, success is fundamentally going to come down to the patient monitoring his or her blood sugars frequently over time.
So with that in mind, the products that we have on hand have a few things in common. First, they are sold in large quantities, enabling customers to order for the time frames that they need. If you're going to be checking your blood sugar levels every day, you're going to want to order several weeks’ or several months’ worth at a time, or you're likely to get overwhelmed trying to do orders and let your monitoring lapse.
Then, too, these mini-lancets are made with new technology that makes this kind of self-diagnosis much easier and more convenient. Easy-prick systems mean you don't have to wrestle with a syringe or try to become your own phlebotomist. Making the lancet process easier encourages patients to do more of this self-checking regularly.
