NutriTutor® & Nutribasic™ Partnership Transforms wellness for Employees
with Diabetes and Pre Diabetes

NutriTutor and Nutribasic Employ Online Wellness Solutions to Help Companies Save Money.


PRLog (Press Release) – May 25, 2011 – NutriTutor® and Nutribasic™ Employ Online Wellness Solutions to  Help Companies Save Money

NutriTutor® and Cyglera Health Systems, Inc. (Nutribasic™) are joining forces to help companies reduce the cost of diabetes using a unique outcomes-based workplace wellness solution. Today, one in 10 American adults has diabetes, but as many as 1 in every 3 could have diabetes by the year 2050, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Diabetes costs the U.S. $58 billion in indirect costs such as disability payments and lost productivity, as documented by the National Diabetes Education Program. The potential impact diabetes may have on future manpower, employer-sponsored health insurance costs, and the continued availability of group plans is worrisome, at best. and  offer a unique system of disease management and health promotion that empowers employees to take charge of their own health, thereby reducing costs.

Workplace wellness programs are gaining in popularity because they are effective for both employer and employee.  Fortune 500’s such as Pfizer, IBM, and PepsiCo use wellness programs to reduce healthcare costs, improve productivity, decrease absenteeism, and engender employee loyalty.  A review of 72 corporate wellness programs by Aldana shows an average return on investment (ROI) of more than $4.00 for every $1.00 spent. Saving money is a compelling reason to offer employees wellness benefits.

While corporate wellness programs excel at preventing disease, they are largely ineffective for treating diabetes. “Diabetes is a complex disease, usually complicated by the metabolic syndrome group of disorders, all of which must be treated”, explains Laurie Van Wyckhouse, a Registered Dietitian and - CEO. Without comprehensive training, diabetes worsens; damaging the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, eyes, feet, and legs. Diabetes Self-Management Training (DSMT), a ten hour curriculum endorsed by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), is so effective that Boren noted a return on investment (ROI) of $4.34 for every $1.00 spent.  Yet fewer than 50% of people with diabetes receive any kind of education, according to the AADE. “Companies can lower expenses considerably by offering DSMT to employees, explains Mick Majid, Cyglera President and CEO. (

Traditional DSMT programs are designed to be instructor /clinician-centered and costly; therefore, NutriTutor® has transformed the design to one that is patient-centered and reasonably priced. As such, NutriTutor  is the only provider of DSMT (Diabetes Self Management Training ) using online training with electronic clinician support. “This really rounds out the corporate wellness arsenal”, states Van Wyckhouse. “Quality training combined with engaging online strategies and ongoing support is the best way to empower people. Empowered people know how to properly manage their disease; which ultimately translates to fewer sick days, reduced health care costs, and more productive employees.” (Read a related article published by Van Wyckhouse at Corporate Wellness Magazine

Both Majid and Van Wyckhouse agree that people with diabetes need support and practice to make enduring lifestyle changes. After receiving education with NutriTutor®, employees become immersed in applying the nutrition and fitness principles they have learned using the Nutribasic™ Lifestyle Health and Wellbeing system. This member-centered online system is the only of its kind; offering a robust array of customized online disease management and prevention tools that transform learning into behavior. Using these dynamic self-monitoring tools in coordination with the coaching we offer promotes personal empowerment, habit change, and accountability. “As confidence goes up, health costs go down”, explains Majid. “We help companies save money by educating, engaging, and empowering their diabetic employees toward better health.”
