Assessment Tool


Many factors can affect the incidence of diabetes and other chronic conditions in employees. These factors include age, ethnicity, and obesity. Medical costs associated with diabetes vary, depending on factors such as the level of overall glucose control and the coexistence of other medical conditions, including heart disease, hypertension, eye disease, or kidney disease.

With better control of diabetes, companies may avoid some of the costs of coexistent diseases later on and may be able to reinvest these "cost avoidance dollars" in other areas of the company.

A new, improved assessment tool is in development. Please check back soon
