These workers want to stay productive while doing their job. They can continue to produce and add to the success of their employers. These they can do with the help and support of their work place and their labor unions. So the company has a huge chance to provide the education and backing for these employees. They, too, have the chance to make sure diabetes is done right.
The company does not have to be a big one. All types of companies can provide support for their employees. How can this be done, you asked? Well, your company can provide support for their employees who have diabetes by bearing the following steps in mind:
1. Work out a helpful environment where the diabetic employees will feel at ease in implementing appropriate actions to maintain tight control of their diabetes.
2. Encourage employees to embrace healthier life styles to decrease their risk and prevent the onset of chronic diseases.
3. Organize and manage all efforts that lead to diabetes control for efficiency and accountability.

Keeping the blood glucose around the normal level is crucial. Why? Not only will this make the employees’ quality of life better but also it will trim down the company’s cost both human and economic. Bear in mind that diabetes is costly, but more so its complications.
Why is there so much hoopla about diabetes? No, this is not just noise and excitement. It’s much more important than that. For one thing, it’s the 7th leading cause of death in the US and affects more than 15 million people in the US alone.
And here’s another thing. We know for a fact that diabetics have 2 to 4 times more risk to have heart disease and stroke than those who do not suffer from diabetes.
