Live in Colorado if You Have Diabetes!

It is tough to manage diabetes alone. Many people are unaware of the basics. Doctors can be brusque, and most prescriptions are sketchy on details. Patients, who thought they had understood it all, find themselves full of questions a day later at home! It is all very well to speak of diets and exercise, but many food labels are incomplete, and we are not all mathematicians to juggle the numbers of calories!

Access to nurses, counselors, and easy sources of information on how to detect and to manage diabetes, helps people, and is a great public health service as well. The elderly and the poor stand to gain the most from this kind of help, but everyone can do with help and advice!

Colorado Medicaid has run a program on diabetes management since 2002. Health care workers make contact with Medicaid members, and offer information. This helps people to be alert against diabetes, to seek timely medical intervention, and to live well with the disease.

Surveys show that a vast majority of Medicaid members in Colorado appreciate the service; it has made a major dent in the incidence of undetected and untreated diabetes in the State.

Everyone does not live in Colorado. Your local authorities may not be able to offer such a service. Perhaps you could do with some answers to questions you have about diabetes. Leave a post here or send me an email. My response will not be a substitute for a personal consultation with your doctor, but I will do my best to respond as best as I can-within 24 hours, 365 days a year, and free of cost!
