Renegade Diabetes Company DollarDiabetesClub.com Breaks Barriers to Glucose Testing; New Online Club Makes Daily Glucose Testing Affordable for Everyone
Company launches in-your-face-video to address disease stigmas & create dialogue.
Park City, Utah (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Having diabetes is expensive but DollarDiabetesClub.com is about to cut costs by 70 percent. Individuals tired of paying outrageous prices or who can’t afford the $1 blood glucose test strips will find relief in the DollarDiabetesClub.com’s discounted prices and convenience. Club members pay only $.23 – $.30 a test strip and get their package delivered right to their door, including all other testing supplies included in the package, free of charge.
“Who can afford to pay the outrageous price of $1 a test strip every time you test your blood sugar,” said Aimee Greenholtz, co-founder of Dollar Diabetes Club. “Checking your blood sugar is vital to managing your diabetes or pre-diabetes, and at this rate, costs can be almost $200 a month for the strips alone. Many people don’t have medical insurance, are paying out-of-pocket, have a high deductable, or an HSA account, making this cost an added burden to an already expensive disease. At DollarDiabetesClub.com our members get test strips at a fraction of the retail cost so millions with this disease who may not be testing regularly can now stay in control.”
There is no price for joining this exclusive club and the only requirement for membership is that individuals have pre-diabetes, diabetes or want to provide test strips for someone that does. Members can choose from three different test strip plans where glucose meters, guaranteed for life, are included in their order, and every package includes free shipping.
All orders include a free: meter for life, lancets, lancing device, and sample products. The Daily Manager includes 100 test strips for $29.99. The Regulator includes 200 test strips for $49.99. The Ultimate Controller includes 400 test strips for $89.99.
The company is also launching a marketing video to dispel diabetes stigmas and start a conversation about disease. The star, “Mr. Frank” gets real about the harsh reality of living with diabetes and shares his unfiltered look at daily life. Go to http://www.DollarDiabetesClub.com to view the video.
How can Dollar Diabetes Club offer expensive test strips at a fraction of the retail cost?
DollarDiabetesClub.com cuts out all costly marketing and packaging costs, complex distribution, as well as expensive spokespeople and sales representatives to provide a high quality product to its members. The average cost of glucose test strips is approximately $1 per strip (National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine).
Are Dollar Diabetes Club test strips good quality or the same quality as other products on the market?
DollarDiabetesClub.com test strips are the exact same quality as name brand test strips. Like the OneTouch Ultra 2, Freestyle Lite and Accu-Check Compact, Dollar Diabetes Club test strips use a small sample size, get results in five seconds, have memory capacity of 400 results (Freestyle Lite and Accu-Check have 500) and include a testing reminder (Ultra 2 doesn’t). Additionally, meter readings may be computer downloaded and are ATS Approved. If, for any reason, members are not happy with their purchase, they may return their order for a full refund, no questions asked.
According to the Joslin Diabetes Center, people who have diabetes should be testing their blood glucose regularly. Consistent blood glucose testing helps determine how well an individual is doing with their diabetes management program (meal planning, exercising and medication) to keep blood glucose as close to normal as possible. The results of the nationwide Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) show that the closer people keep their blood glucose to normal, the more likely they are to prevent diabetes complications like heart disease, blindness, nerve damage, and other problems.
The Mission of Dollar Diabetes Club is to make daily blood glucose testing affordable to all people affected by diabetes so they may better control their disease. By providing a special club where individuals not only belong but can buy top-of-the-line test strips at a fraction of the retail cost, Dollar Diabetes Club is making blood sugar testing more affordable to the 25.8 million people with diabetes and the 79 million people with pre-diabetes (2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet).
