Eyes On Diabetes
Are you one of the nearly 24 MILLION adults and children in the United States with Diabetes? If so you could be at risk for early CATARACTS or BLINDNESS.
As the blood sugar increases in people with diabetes, the ability of the eye to focus becomes affected. The lens, the part of the inner eye that helps focus vision, fills with sugar and water. The water then changes the shape, size, and color of the lens leading to a CATARACT which causes blurry vision. Cataract surgery may help some patients regain some vision.
If Diabetes is left uncontrolled, BLINDNESS can develop. Diabetes causes the blood vessels in the retina, the part of the eye that detects light, to shut down. As a result, the retina has poor blood flow and doesn’t get the nutrients it needs to survive. If you don’t receive proper treatment, the retina will die and permanent vision loss may ensue.
Would you like to prevent Diabetic CATARACT and BLINDNESS?
All in favor, say EYE!
If you have Diabetes or PreDiabetes, the Department of Ophthalmology at Stony Brook University can provide Diabetic Screening Examinations and Treatment by Board Certified Ophthalmologists.

Diabetes Research Foundation
the world's leading nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of diabetes research, was
founded in 1970 by the parents of children with juvenile diabetes - a disease
which strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin dependent for life and carries
the constant threat of devasting complications.
inception, JDRF has provided more than $410 million to diabetes research worldwide.
In 2001 alone, we will spend $120 million. We are proud to say that 85 cents of
every dollar goes directly to research and education. Our mission is constant:
to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
Long Island Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has a terrific
program for young people with diabetes. It's called the Youth Ambassador Program
(YAP for short). The group meets monthly and discusses all aspects of life with
diabetes as well as ways they can help JDRF. Members are NOT required to fund-raise.
Youth Ambassadors are honorary hosts at chapter events, such as the gala and research
update. Call 631-414-1126 for more information and join the more than 50 youth

Southampton Hospital – The Center for Advanced Wound Healing
240 Meeting House Lane, Southampton N.Y. 11968 631-726-3300
Chronic, difficult wounds that have not responded to standard treatment require specialized expertise. Chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation and other medical conditions can significantly impact quality of life. In some cases, they put patients at risk for hospitalization and amputation.
The Center for Advanced Wound Healing at Southampton Hospital offers specialized wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy with oversight by a medical team skilled in the latest evidence-based methods to treat stubborn wounds. Customized treatment plans, continuity of care, and communication with your personal physician assure the highest level of success.
On your first visit, a physician and certified wound care nurse will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs that will include a variety of therapies, among them:
- Edema reduction (excess fluid)
- Removal of damaged tissue
- Topical therapies (medications and dressings)
- Skin substitutes
- Compression therapy
- Negative pressure therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
HBOT is highly effective and safe. It significantly increases the level of oxygen in the bloodstream, helping to:
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a painless, noninvasive treatment for chronic wounds and infections that have resisted other treatment. HBOT uses pressured oxygen to help wounds heal faster. HBOT is completely painless and you have ample space to lie comfortably in the transparent hyperbaric chamber. Patients breathe 100% oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure while lying in a hyperbaric chamber. Take a nap, watch television or a DVD, and talk face-to-face with your caregiver during treatments which typically last 90 minutes. The number of treatments will depend on your wound’s condition and how it responds to therapy.
- Boost the body’s natural healing process
- Stimulate the growth of new blood cells
- Reduce swelling and inflammation
- Aid in the fight against infection
Who manages my care?
Our professional staff will monitor your progress and need for follow-up care, and keep your physician informed with regular updates. You and your caregiver will also receive extensive instruction on how to manage your condition at home after the specialized treatment has ended.
What if I need additional services?
Our Center is located in the Hospital so it is easy to access other medical resources on an outpatient basis. The Nurse Manager will make these arrangements for you.
Will health insurance cover the costs?
Most health plans, including Medicare, cover wound healing and hyperbaric medicine treatments for approved indications. Our staff will handle your insurance pre-certification and verification for your convenience.
Is a physician referral necessary?
Referral is not necessary. If you have a chronic wound that requires specialized expertise, call the Center at (631) 726-3300.

UNITED LIFELINE & UNITED HOME SERVICES BASICS
United Lifeline, providing personal emergency response services since 1983, traditionally has charged $75.00 for installation and $45.00 for the monthly service fee. However, we are currently offering our services for a $50.00 installation cost and $39.00 monthly fee. Since we are a not-for-profit organization, under the umbrella of United Adult Ministries ( who work with many church grants), we have the ability to be somewhat flexible and work with a sliding scale, as necessary, to assist in service availability. We are also Medicaid contracted which gives us the ability to work with Medicaid providers. In addition, we bill month to month with no contractual obligation and if services must be stopped and removed for any reason and then need to be reinstalled, we do NOT charge for reinstallation again. In a hardship situation, we will waive the bill for several months so that service is not disrupted.
The United Home Services program offers discounted maintenance and handyman services, as well as professional tradesmen such as electricians, plumbers and carpenters. They are all pre-screened, and have agreed to discount their rates and provide accountability to the job time frame and completion. This service is available through a $95.00 annual membership fee plus hourly fees which also includes a free full house inspection for awareness of the property’s condition, as well as batteries in the smoke detector for safety. There are no minimum hour requirements and the job can include yard debris removal, gutter cleaning, light changing, caulking, painting, etc. ($14.00-$17.00 hourly) or extensive carpentry, plumbing and electrical services (Discounted 30-50% off the normal fees).
There is an additional option of getting both services, United Lifeline and United Home Services for only $45.00 per month and NO installation or membership fees are then charged. United Lifeline goes beyond just offering fall/medical attention; it has also prevented burglaries and provided fire alerts. United Home Services also provides independence by providing the ability to attain important home maintenance and preventing falls or other serious injuries. As always, the goal is to keep the client safe and independent while providing peace of mind.
United Lifeline is available in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, as well as the metropolitan area. United Home Services are available in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Any further questions, please call 1-800-345-4571 or 516-364-3401.
