The Latest Tools for Living Well with Diabetes

Diabetes Forecast Magazine Publishes 2015 Consumer Guide

Alexandria, Virginia – WEBWIRE

Diabetes Forecast, the Healthy Living Magazine from the American Diabetes Association, has released its annual Consumer Guide with the March/April 2015 issue. The number of diabetes devices and products on the market can be overwhelming. The Consumer Guide is a catalog of reliable information people with diabetes can use to choose the products that best meet their needs. Highlights from the 2015 guide include:

The Future Is Near: From inhaled insulin to glucose-detecting contact lenses, these 14 new and forthcoming products reflect big changes in the diabetes world.

Blood Glucose Meters: While test strip cost is often a driving factor when it comes to choosing a meter, there are five additional features to consider: ease of use, size and shape, reimbursement, accuracy and download ability. The magazine also highlights products with high-tech capabilities, such as Bluetooth.

Insulin Pumps: From the body’s standpoint, all pumps essentially deliver insulin the same way. But the range of features makes them quite different from a user perspective. Diabetes Forecast covers all the models available on the U.S. market.

Injection Helpers: Injecting insulin can be challenging if you have limited sensation or pain in your hands, vision problems or are afraid of needles. These 17 tools ease the task of taking shots.

Why I Use My Diabetes Devices: In this article, people who use diabetes tools daily describe what devices and features they like—and why. The reasons include cost, portability, pain level and more. “My son is scared of needles, so we use the pen. … It eases his anxiety,” says one mom.

Also in the March/April 2015 issue of Diabetes Forecast:

  • Your favorite dishes—like BLT sandwich and pork lo mein—minus the excess calories.
  • The first Girl Scout troop for children with type 1 diabetes.
  • Does the time of day you exercise matter for blood glucose management?

Diabetes Forecast has been America’s leading diabetes magazine for more than 65 years, offering the latest news on diabetes research and treatment to provide information, inspiration and support to people with diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to Stop Diabetes and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes.
