When Learning About Diabetes, Knowledge Is Power

We all remember the old schoolhouse rock song that says knowledge is power, but have you ever really thought about what benefits can be reaped by having as much diabetes knowledge as possible?

In an age when information is right at our fingertips you would think that upping our diabetes knowledge would be a simple thing, and it is… if you find diabetes information that is accurate and easy to access. Here in lies the challenge.

I don’t interact with a whole lot of diabetics. There someone in my neighborhood that I’ve talked about it one time with. There’s Bernard, who I work with, who is a big hero when it comes to dealing with work/life/family/exercise and balancing it all as a type 1. And there’s a few online communities that I read and contribute to such as Tudiabetes and Quality Health.

I have actually found a site called QualityHealth which provides you with accurate diabetes information that is easy to access. On top of just upping your diabetes knowledge at QualityHealth you will be given access to some great discount diabetic supplies.

So in this case diabetes knowledge is power…and money saved on discount diabetic supplies. Keep reading, I’ll let you know how QualityHealth works.

Since you are reading this post on a diabetes website I’m going to make the assumption that you are into upping your diabetes knowledge. And since you are human I’m going to assume that you would like to be able to find out about some discount diabetic supplies. Hey you gotta buy diabetes supplies anyway right? Why not save a little cash.

The first thing you are going to want to do is go to QualityHealth and register yourself as a user. It’s really easy and it’s free. I’ll give you the step by step on how to register:

  • You can follow this link to QualityHealth
  • You then need to click on the button to register as a user
  • You will need to supply the following information: first and last name, address, email address (they have a privacy policy that ensures that they will never share your information unless you give them your consent)
  • Next you get to customize the information that is supplied to you. This is done by checking off all of the health issues that both you and your family have.
  • Next you can choose from a number of monthly/bi-monthly newsletters that you can receive via email. The obvious choice for you would be the diabetes newsletter that is available but there are a number of other interesting newsletter that I would suggest including emotional wellbeing and diet and nutrition.
  • You’re done with the registration.

What you will see once you start poking around is that QualityHealth is filled with tons of diabetes information that will increase your personal diabetes knowledge. My suggestion would be to start off in the Diabetes Health Center Section.

The way that QualityHealth gives you discounts on diabetic health supplies is as a reward for completing very easy, very short surveys right on the site. It’s a simple way to earn some great discount diabetic supplies.

Battle Diabetes isn’t usually one for telling it’s readers to sign up for this or that but since I am a member of QualityHealth myself and have reaped the benefits first hand… I feel pretty comfortable advising you to do the same.

Register with QualityHealth today to start upping your diabetes knowledge, receive diabetes newsletters, and discount diabetic supplies. You’ll be glad you did.
