Top 5 Diabetes Products

Monday, 18 November 2013  |  Paul

This week on the 14th of November people got together across the world to raise funds and awareness for World Diabetes Day. In the UK Diabetes is on the rise with the number of people diagnosed with diabetes increasing from 1.4 million to 2.9 million since 1996 it is becoming a dominant health problem. It has been estimated by Diabetes UK that there will be a rise in type 2 diabetes in particular because of our ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people. To help fight back these looming odds it is important to make healthy lifestyle changes, improve self-management among people with diabetes and improve access to diabetes care services and information.

There are many products available today to help manage Diabetes and the problems and complications it brings. Here are some of our top products for Diabetes:

5. 1000 Mile Diabetic Sock £13.99

The 1000 Mile Diabetic Sock offers total comfort and increased protection against blistering for sufferers from circulatory problems and Diabetes. These diabetic socks feature thick loop stitched padded areas in the sole, toe and heel to give a cushioned fit whilst a light upper panel keeps the foot cool and is ergonomically shaped to aid circulation.

4. Vasyli Armstrong Diabetic Orthotic Insoles £54.99

The Vasyli Armstrong Diabetic Orthotic Insoles are unique orthotics that are a revelation for sufferers of diabetes. These diabetic insoles address the key problem areas for the diabetic foot such as shearing forces, friction and pressure. The Vasyli Armstrong Insoles for diabetics reduce shear pressure in the forefoot area by 50% and dramatically reduce the onset of plantar ulcers.

3. e-pill CADEX Medication Reminder and Medical Alert Watch £71.99

The e-pill CADEX Medication Reminder and Medical Alert Watch provide peace of mind on your wrist and is ideal for diabetics. The CADEX Medication Reminder Watch reminds the user when he or she has to take their diabetes medication and what he or she has to do at pre-programmed times. The e-pill CADEX Medication Reminder and Medical Alert Watch also features a data bank which holds valuable information for both the user and emergency services in the event of an adverse medical episode which is important for sufferers of Diabetes.

2. The Hypoglycaemia Low Blood Sugar Alarm £99.95

The Hypoglycaemia Low Blood Sugar Alarm can detect the symptoms of Hypoglycaemia, low blood sugar in diabetic people.  The low blood sugar alarm for hypoglycaemia has sensors which when in contact with the skin of the wrist or ankle respond to perspiration and body temperature (cold sweats) which are two common symptoms of low blood sugar. If a cold sweat is detected, a built in vibrator operates along with a tone beeper alarm. The persistent vibration from the low blood sugar alarm is sufficient to disturb most users from sleep enabling a blood test and remedial action to be taken. 

1. Microlife WatchBP Home S (AFIB) And Daily Blood Pressure Monitor £74.99

This Microlife WatchBP Home S features screening for Atrial fibrillation (AFIB) at home and is recommended by leading medical societies.  The Microlife WatchBP Home S can detect risk factors such as high blood pressure and the presence of AFIB with high accuracy and reminds patients to contact their physician with an animated alert making it suitable for hypertensive patients with or without Diabetes.
