Diabetes Breakthrough Goes Public
Save Americans Millions

NV – Diabetes cost America $174 billion dollars in
2007. The American Diabetes Association reports $116 billion of
the overall diabetes price tag is for medical expenditures. The
other $58 billion is from indirect costs like absenteeism and disease-related
unemployment disability. One out of every 5 American health care
dollars is spent caring for someone diagnosed with diabetes.
Now, imagine all that money didn’t need to be spent.
Imagine the 20.8 million Americans the CDC says are diagnosed with
diabetes, and the other one third that are un-diagnosed, didn’t
need to have their feet amputated, didn’t have bleeding into
the eyes, didn’t have kidney problems, heart problems or convulsions.
Dr. Marc Rose imagined a world without complications from diabetes
over 20 years ago. This month the company he co-founded VitalCare
(Care That Is Vital for Your Life) went public on the Stock Exchange.
“The 85-thousand Americans a year who will have their feet
amputated - the 12-million who will have bleeding into the eyes
because of diabetes - we can stop that. We can stop it and reverse
the damage,” the renowned physician states.
Most people think of diabetes as a blood sugar problem. But blood
sugar and insulin are just symptoms of the disease. Diabetes is
caused by a malfunctioning metabolism.
No matter how carefully a type 1 (juvenile onset) or type 2 (adult
onset) diabetic monitors blood sugar or measures insulin, he or
she is still fighting a ticking clock. Nearly all diabetics will
eventually have complications like kidney or heart failure.
VitalCare clinics use iCAT Therapy (TM pending) to give diabetics
micro-pulses of insulin, mimicking the way food and energy are processed
in the normal human body. Dr. Rose says over time the treatment
stops, stabilizes and actually manages to fix damage from diabetes.
To date, no negative side effects have been reported.
The FDA approved once a week six hour treatment costs $1-thousand
dollars. “It might sound like a lot,” says Rose, “but
once someone goes sour – that costs hundreds of thousands
of dollars a year. This actually saves HMO’s, PPO’s,
hospitals and taxpayers money. If we can cut hospitalizations for
diabetes by just 50 percent – and we can – that will
save millions of dollars a year.”
Rose has 30 VitalCare clinics throughout the country – but
imagines more. “I see so many diabetics with complications…human
beings who don’t know about - or can’t get to –
a clinic. These patients don’t have to ‘go sour’
