NOTE: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
In Canada, there were 3.3 million people living with diabetes in 2014. Chances are, you know someone living with the disease. I do.
Following my previous post, Making the Right Decisions when they Matter Most, I’m happy to continue the conversation about diabetes, and share the stories of those who are living with the disease – and thriving. Because even though there is no cure – only ways to manage symptoms and prevent complications – more and more Canadians diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes have achieved extraordinary professional milestones.
Did You Know:
– An estimated one in three people will be affected by diabetes by 2020.
– A recent survey found that despite the high prevalence of diabetes in Canada, there are many misconceptions around the disease and how to properly manage it.
– 82% of Canadians agree that having diabetes has some limit on what you can do with your life.
– Almost half of Canadians (47%) don’t think that diabetes is a difficult disease to manage.
The disease can be managed, of course, but when it comes to testing blood glucose, accuracy is paramount. Diabetics depend on a meter to help make important decisions in their blood glucose management. Industry standards have an acceptable error range of ±15% to lab results. But Bayer’s CONTOUR NEXT meter gives an even more accurate reading with ±10% to lab results. And accurate readings can help make the right decisions when they matter most.
Remember: share this coupon to receive a FREE Bayer CONTOUR NEXT meter with the purchase of CONTOUR NEXT Test Strips. Professional athletes like Max Domi trust Bayer’s CONTOUR NEXT meter for an easy testing experience, more tracking knowledge with 7-, 14-, 30- and 90-day averages of blood glucose levels, and simple, plain language messages with no codes or abbreviations.
