In the Midst of National Diabetes Awareness Month, Correct Care Solutions Hopes to Raise Awareness
With more than 10,000 patients with diabetes under its care, CCS joins the American Diabetes Association, others in the fight to prevent and treat the disease
Nashville, Tenn.— In the midst of National Diabetes Awareness Month, Correct Care Solutions is on the front lines of treating the disease in its public health facilities across the country where approximately five percent of CCS patients have diabetes. Nationwide, 30.3 million Americans – or 9.4 percent of the population – have diabetes, according to 2015 data from the American Diabetes Association.
“Diabetes is one of the most frequent diagnoses that we see in our patients,” said Dr. Keldie. “We applaud the American Diabetes Association for their work to raise awareness of the disease so that more instances can be prevented, delayed, and properly treated.”
Diabetes remains the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, and when untreated puts the patient at a higher risk for serious complications including skin infections, glaucoma, cataracts and nerve damage. As the services proved by CCS are oftentimes the first or most consistent healthcare received by its patients, early detection and treatment for diabetes is of the utmost importance to CCS doctors and nurses. Specific services that CCS provides to its patients with diabetes includes intake screening, educational programming regarding personal health and diet, and various degrees of treatment for its patients.
CCS will continue to highlight its work to with diabetic patients and bring attention to valuable resources throughout National Diabetes Awareness month.
