Toll-Free Hotline Launched

Staffed by diabetes educators

Nov 9, 2006

The holidays, although fun and festive, are stressful for many Americans; however, people with type 2 diabetes face a battle far more difficult than gaining a few extra holiday pounds.

People with diabetes have to deal with the added worry of maintaining healthy behaviors during a time that is synonymous with overindulgence.

However, in an effort to provide diabetics with emotional support and condition management coaching during this challenging time of year, Nutrition 21 is launching a live toll-free hotline staffed by diabetes educators.

People with diabetes can call the hotline — 1-877-PICK-330 — from Tuesday, November 14-Saturday, November 18 to speak with a live diabetes educator and receive a personalized assessment to help them manage their condition during the holiday season and beyond.

Note: Nutrition 21 is the maker of Diachrome, a nutritional therapy clinically proven to keep blood sugar and cholesterol in check when combined with prescription diabetes medications.

my mother's glucose was 140 this morning. She was concerened because it's not usually that high in the am. Should she take her glipizide? She normally doesn't need to.

I now have type 1 insulin dependant diabetes and with the amount of people this kills and all the side ailments it causes...a person would think there would be a hotline 24/7 so us newbies could get rel info from experienced diabetics. Hell! Most of the Doctors don't know a lot about managing it.
