Managing diabetes can be difficult and tedious. Doctors try to explain everything in plain language, but no matter how many pamphlets you get or how much time you spend with doctors, people complain they they don't understand what to do.
This Care Kit has all the essential tools you need to understand how blood sugar works and ties them into one plan with three clear goals. Designed by clinicians and adult educators, its the perfect resource for anyone who currently has diabetes or is at risk.
Reference tools such as the Build-a-Meal Guide, Kitchen Food Poster, Exercise Plan, and recipe cards are your constant source and reminder to stay on track.
The Care Kit also includes a 14 dose pill organizer, portion-control measuring cups, foot lotion, glucose tablets and a mirror to check your feet for foot ulcers that could send you to the hospital.
This kit is used by many leading health plans and hospitals. At one teaching hospital, Care Kit users had 90% fewer readmissions than a group who attended diabetic education classes alone. With this Care Kit, you don't have to run for a dictionary. You don’t run looking for the right tools either. Everything you need to manage your diabetes is here.

“The Care Kit gives me indispensable knowledge to understand and manage my blood sugar. I’d already read a couple of books and pamphlets on the subject; you tied all of those random bits of information into an understandable whole.”
"I don’t have to guess, or keep a list of questions for the next trip to my physician. The Care Kit is now my go-to source for managing my diabetes.”
