GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Diabetes is the nation's largest and fastest-growing chronic disease. If left untreated, it can cause serious complications and even death. Taking care of someone with diabetes is so important and Wright & Filippis can help. It's the state's largest full-service home healthcare company and they see many patients affected by diabetes. It affects about 8% of the population, one in every twelve Americans. It's estimated that more than one in four seniors over the age of 65 has diabetes. The good news is, diabetes is treatable. It requires self-management, including regular monitoring of blood glucose levels. Wright & Filippis play in helping people with diabetes by providing diabetic testing supplies. Their staff can handle all the paperwork, coordinate your insurance coverage, and ship the supplies you need right to your door, and that shipping is always free. They've also launched a new website, OrderDiabetic.com, which has resources such as newsletters and informational videos for people with diabetes. Visitors can set up their own account, order the supplies they need, and track shipping. Wright & Fillippis is especially proud of their Diabetic Footcare Program, a comprehensive program where certified clinicians provide custom orthotics, diabetic shoes, support stockings, and other products to make your life easier.
