RestorixHealth Puts Spotlight on American Diabetes Month with “Diabetic Foot Awareness” Campaign

Diabetic Foot Awareness – A RestorixHealth Awareness Initiative

Up to 80 percent of all diabetic amputations are preventable.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 08, 2019
During American Diabetes Month®, RestorixHealth is reminding people with diabetes that they are at a higher risk for non-healing foot wounds – and therefore amputations – than most Americans and that a wound healing center can provide guidance for prevention and treatment.
For most Americans, a blister or cut on the foot is a small inconvenience that a bandage and time will heal. But that’s not the case for the 29.1 million Americans who have diabetes. Some of the complications of diabetes make feet vulnerable to non-healing foot ulcers that can result in infections and even amputations. Sixty to seventy percent of people with diabetes have limited or no feeling in their feet—their early warning systems have been altered or completely shut down by nerve damage. RestorixHealth is encouraging consumers (especially those with diabetes) to perform daily foot checks and address any skin changes or red patches on the feet by calling their local wound healing center immediately for an evaluation. The company’s centers will educate, prevent and provide treatment when necessary.
“It’s much easier to treat a minor foot problem before it becomes serious,” says John C. Capotorto, M.D., endocrinologist, chief medical officer and founder of RestorixHealth. “Many of our centers’ patients have a diabetic foot ulcer. This type of non-healing wound is the leading cause of hospitalization and amputation for people with diabetes. A person with diabetes has impaired immunity and often reduced blood flow to the legs and feet. Both can hamper healing, cause infections and cause damage to underlying structures and bones. In some cases, the damage can lead to a toe, foot or leg amputation.”
The World Health Organization estimates that up to 80 percent of all diabetic amputations are preventable. RestorixHealth’s wound healing centers will provide the best treatment to help the wound heal. However, in order to prevent a foot ulcer from starting, it is vital that patients with diabetes check their feet daily and get regular foot care from their doctor.
According to the American Diabetes Association, one adult is diagnosed in the United States every 19 seconds. That’s 1.7 million more people each year at risk for non-healing wounds and other complications. What’s more, one in four people who have diabetes today are undiagnosed and don’t know they’re at risk.
RestorixHealth utilizes evidence-based best practices and advanced therapies to develop individualized treatment plans for faster healing so patients can return to their daily lives and enjoy what they care about most.

Fighting Diabetes and Heart Disease With Healthier Options at Work

Healthy YOU Vending provides healthy, convenient snacks and entrees in workplaces to promote diets that help manage diabetes and prevent heart disease.
Press Release – updated: Nov 6, 2019 09:00 EST

SALT LAKE CITY, November 6, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ​November is American Diabetes Month. In partnership with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), this year’s American Diabetes Month considers the link between diabetes and heart disease. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the longer a person has diabetes, the higher their chances of developing heart disease—the leading cause of death in the U.S. According to the institute, the increased risk of heart disease is due to high blood glucose from diabetes damaging the blood vessels and nerves that control the heart.   
Two types of diabetes exist, but according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the most common form is Type 2. Those with Type 2 diabetes can help manage their condition through a healthy diet and exercise, while also working with their healthcare provider to identify effective medications and treatments. Type 1 diabetes can be harder to manage and requires working closely with a healthcare provider to determine the best diet, insulin routine and fitness plan for effective management.
Managing both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and reducing the associated risk of developing heart disease requires healthy eating. Healthy YOU Vending provides healthier snack and meal options in the workplace through its network of independent operators. Healthy YOU Vending’s options include low-sodium entrees and snacks with a low glycemic index.             
“We are happy to provide convenient access to wholesome choices, all while helping our operators run successful businesses,” said Healthy YOU Vending’s Director of Operator Services Jill Navidomskis. “When people don’t have to run out for a fast-food lunch that is high in both calories and sodium, it saves stress and makes the choice to eat healthy more accessible.”     
But healthy eating is only one step in managing diabetes and preventing heart disease. Regular exercise is equally important. According to a study of people with diabetes by researchers at Harvard, those who walked at least two hours a week are less likely to die of heart disease than their sedentary counterparts. And those who exercised three to four hours a week cut their risk even more. From these studies and others, it’s clear that those who live sedentary lifestyles risk developing cardiovascular diseases. So, any type or duration of daily exertion will help to reduce the risk of illness.
