A recent article on NBC news tells us that more than 29 million American adults have diabetes, and a quarter of them don’t even know it. That number represents more than 9 percent of the population! It is also noted that another 86 million (one third of the adult population) are already pre-diabetic. The director of diabetes translation at the CDC, Ann Albright, says, “These new numbers are alarming and underscore the need for an increased focus on reducing the burden of diabetes in our country. Diabetes is costly in both human and economic terms. It’s urgent that we take swift action to effectively treat and prevent this serious disease.” With diabetes and its related complications racking up $245 billion in medical costs, lost work and wages, it’s clear that there are many with this disease in need of urgent financial help. If you have unwanted and unexpired diabetic test strips that you are no longer using, why don’t you help us in our efforts to provide people who either do not have insurance themselves, or cannot afford the retails prices of their test supplies. Not only will you be making some extra cash for something you would normally throw away, but you’ll also be helping someone who may not otherwise be able to test their blood glucose levels.
