Circularity Healthcare Named “Company of the Year” – Top 10 Diabetes Care Solution Providers 2018

BREAKING NEW GROUNDS IN DIABETES CARE

According to the American Diabetes Association, millions of people around the world live with diabetes or know someone living with diabetes. No type of diabetes is curable yet; however, it is a very treatable disease, and no matter how frightening, annoying, and frustrating it can be, people with diabetes can live long, healthy, and happy lives. Our goal is to provide you the information, tools, and resources to help make that happen.

In a recent statistics report from CDC National Diabetes Statistics, diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States in 2015, with 79,535 death certificates listing it as the underlying cause of death and a total of 252,806 death certificates listing diabetes as an underlying or contributing cause of death.

With numerous methods on the market for managing and treating diabetes, there is one product that is a cut above the others when it comes to diabetes care–D’OXYVA by Circularity Healthcare. Setting a new paradigm in health science, D’OXYVA is a truly unique technology at its core, a first-of-its-kind biotech solution clinically validated to significantly lower the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular complications.

Circularity Healthcare was recently selected for the list of Top 10 Diabetes Care Solution Providers of 2018 in the upcoming November Diabetes Carespecial edition of MedTech Outlook magazine after receiving more than 270 unique nominations from more than 39,000 qualified print and 66,000 qualified digital subscribers. The magazine does not rank the top ten providers; it lists them in alphabetical order on a full page. In addition, the magazine will run a featured article on Circularity and its D’OXYVA product line in the same special edition this November.

The future holds favorable prospects for Circularity Healthcare. They are expecting continued commercial growth with D’OXYVA, with other major announcements to follow shortly in multiple leading media outlets in the US and around the world as Circularity’s global marketing and PR campaign based on years of yetunpublished highly successful clinical evidence unfolds in the coming weeks and months.

At the end of it all, D’OXYVA is indeed a revolutionary and a much-needed step toward a powerful and safe diabetes care solution that is adding immeasurable value to health outcomes.

ABOUT D’OXYVA

Clinical studies with D’OXYVA®  (deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator) have shown extraordinary results for the role of transdermal noninvasive wound care using ultra-purified, nontoxic, FDA-cleared molecules, such as CO2especially when all other approaches failed.

In an ongoing multiyear, multi-country, multicenter, randomized clinical trial on patients with diabetic foot ulcers, D’OXYVA has demonstrated speeding up diabetic wound healing and ultimately wound closure to an average of 5 weeks**.

Why foot care is important for someone with diabetes?

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. Diabetes can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other problems if it is not controlled.

One serious complication with diabetes is foot ulcers. Those with diabetes commonly develop nerve damage called peripheral neuropathy which leaves them unable to feel their feet properly. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to poor circulation and an impaired immune system. These factors all combine to make it difficult for wounds, like foot ulcers, to heal.

“Diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic amputation,” said Dr. Leon Reber, DPM, a foot and ankle physician in St. George. “About 85% of non-traumatic amputations begin with a diabetic foot ulcer. Many of those amputations could have been prevented with proper foot care. Educating those with diabetes and pre-diabetes is very important.”

The leading cause of foot ulcers is neuropathy, or nerve damage. Neuropathy leaves people unable to feel their feet. According to Reber, “feeling pain is a gift when it comes to feet.” Any unnoticed rubbing, blistering, or injury to the foot may become infected and put the foot at risk for more serious complications.

Reber gave five great suggestions on how to properly care for feet, especially the feet of those with diabetes and neuropathy.

  1. Keep blood sugar levels and diabetes under control. Exercise and walk regularly, eat healthily, and stop smoking. “Smoking can lead to a decrease in circulation to the feet,” Reber said. “Decreased circulation makes wounds to the feet harder to heal.”
  2. Inspect both feet every day. “Seeing the bottom of your feet may be difficult, so use a mirror or enlist the help of a friend or spouse,” said Reber. “Any visibly red, blistered, burned, swollen, or injured areas should be seen promptly by a medical professional.”
  3. Wear well-fitting shoes and socks and avoid going barefoot. “Ill-fitting shoes along with other feet issues such as hammer toes, bunions, and heel spurs can lead to blisters that can become infected,” Reber said. “When you can’t feel pain in your feet, don’t walk barefoot outside or test bath water temperatures with your foot to avoid burns and or frostbite.”
  4. Wash feet with soap and water and moisturize every day. “Be sure to dry between your toes really well,” said Reber. “Moisture between the toes can cause the skin to break down allowing bacteria to enter. Likewise, when moisturizing feet to prevent cracks or callouses, try not to get lotion and added moisture between the toes.”
  5. Be careful when trimming toenails. “Accidentally cutting the skin while clipping toenails or developing an ingrown toenail can be disastrous for those who have neuropathy,” Reber said. “Consider having nails trimmed regularly by a doctor or other professional.”

If a wound or ulcer does occur, seek medical attention. A podiatrist, or foot doctor, can help the wound heal, prevent infection, or treat infection if necessary. Trimming away unhealthy skin, offloading — or taking pressure off the wound — are best left to professionals.

“If you observe any wound to the foot and are diabetic please come in right away,” Reber said. “There are many good treatment options. If we can heal the wound before it becomes infected, so many complications can be avoided. Seeing a podiatrist regularly is a great way for everyone to take good care of their feet.”
