Diagnosis and Treatment
Getting patients to understand the importance of diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing monitoring for diabetes is imperative to prevent progressive damage caused by elevated blood glucose levels, including progressive nerve damage, vision loss, and permanent damage of organs and limbs.
When treatment is successful, patients achieve significant decreases in A1c and can reach and maintain the ADA recommended goal of 7%. This is why we try to make it easy and convenient for patients to start up with Apria’s Diabetes Supplies Program. Plus, our licensed Pharmacy Technicians and licensed Certified Diabetic Educators are available to answer their questions. Further, we help to increase compliance by calling your patients periodically to remind them of supply refills/reorders. Click here to learn more about our services.
Impotence from Diabetes and Treatment
Impotence often occurs in males diagnosed with diabetes, and vacuum therapy can be a safe and successful non-invasive treatment recommended by urologists for all causes of impotence.1
Apria carries the Encore® System, which is an impotence treatment device. The Encore® System increases the blood flow to the penis resulting in a rigid erection. A soft comfortable ring is then placed at the base of the penis to hold the erection.
