Education: Supporting Individuals with Diabetes
Employers can help people with diabetes reduce their
health risks and avoid serious complications (blindness, heart and
kidney disease, and amputation) by encouraging good habits to maintain
blood sugar levels. Employees also feel better, remain productive
and need less medical intervention, which brings down the cost of
treating diabetes and can help control overall medical costs.
