Type 1 & Type 2: Eye for the Diabetic Guy and Gal

Becton Dickinson and Company (BD) and its “Diabetes Dream Team” of experts recently partnered with Olympic gold medalist Gary Hall, Jr., to present BD Diabetes Makeover, a national program designed to motivate people with diabetes to improve their diabetes management.

The BD Diabetes Dream Team—a group of leading clinical, diabetes education, nutrition, fitness and lifestyle, organization experts, was formed to inspire people with diabetes to understand that “there are no barriers to what they can accomplish.”

Participants undergoing the BD Diabetes Makeover are evaluated and provided with a “tailored program” to improve their diabetes care.

BD says it is organizing and conducting “mini-makeovers” in regional markets throughout the year.

The personalized care plans in the BD Diabetes Makeover include:

A clinical evaluation
New medication regimens
Education on diabetes self-management practices
An individualized fitness plan
Nutritional guidance
Lifestyle-management skills
Ongoing support
