How Medicare Helps People With Diabetes

At a recent meeting of my staff, the topic of diabetes came up. When we went around the table, it turned out that 25 percent of them have problems with blood sugar. That figure exactly matches the percentage of Americans 65 years old and older who have diabetes or a condition called pre-diabetes.

Thoughts for Day 5 but day 1 of this blog.
