DiabetesDiabetes affects about 23.6 million people in the United States. Because of the complexity of the disease and its management, diabetics are more likely to use health care services than the general population. Many people with diabetes have comorbid conditions such as CHF, Pneumonia, Infection and Kidney Disease to name a few. As such, it is important for a diabetic patient to monitor not only their glucose levels, but also things such as weight and blood pressure to ensure everything is running smooth and healthy.
