The Value of Early Detection
Diabetes is well known for its many potential complications. From nerve damage to heart disease, undetected and untreated diabetes can lead to a number of problematic conditions. However, early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing many of the complications of this disease.
As an employer, the value of early detection is twofold. First and foremost, it enables you to help your employees maintain their health and avoid harmful health complications. Additionally, through early treatment and proper management, it can help you to avoid the need for more costly treatments or procedures later down the road.
An early investment in corporate health and wellness programs, from providing a diabetes symptoms checklist to offering disease management services, has a proven return on investment.
Start With A Diabetes Symptoms Checklist
