Costco Keeps the Needs of Those Living with Diabetes in Stock


While shopping at Costco last week, I went with the purpose of finding products that would be sufficient for a diabetes friendly diet. While browsing the aisles, my stomach was growling with the endless healthy food options available. All of them versatile and delicious while keeping diabetes prevention top of mind. While I do not have diabetes, I am one of the 80 million people at risk for developing this disease which currently has no cure. That is why I have decided to work closely with in order to share important information about living with diabetes.

What I like about Costco is that not only do they have an endless array of healthy food options they carry a great selection of products especially geared with those living with diabetes. If you’re a Costco member, you can save big on all the necessary diabetes products you use every day. From blood glucose testing supplies to nutritional supplements, you will find everything you need at Costco. I was able to approach the pharmacist on staff and have him show me some of the products being featured. He also shared with me the benefits of these products for those living with diabetes.
