We Don't Treat That

Started by lotsofshots in General Diabetes Topics and Pre-Diabetes. Last reply by lotsofshots 33 minutes ago. 92 Replies

I went to the doctor today and after a two hour appointment I was told that I was not going to be given a prescription for Insulin. Yikes. It was because I was Type 1. "We don't treat that. You need a consult to an Endo. How about Septemeber?" Run…Continue

Diabetic attack

Posted by merna1999ms on July 22, 2014 at 6:15am 0 Comments

So guys this is like a lyrics parody about diabetes of the song heart attack by DeMI LOVATO if you know her, so here are the lyrics:

"Diabetes Attack"

Eating my snacks all up

‘Cause I don’t wanna feel low

If I ever did that

I think I’d never have my blood sugar low

Never put my diabetes out on the line

Never said "Yes" to the right snack

Always had trouble eating what I want

But when it comes to you, I’m never good enough

My first run in with the Affordable Care Act!

Posted by halford on July 20, 2014 at 5:18am 7 Comments

In June I got my prescribed 10 test strips per day which equals 300/month. I'm a type 1 diabetic and I test my blood sugar 8-12 times per day because I'm active (I run marathons) and I drive a company car and do NOT want to go low and get in a car accident. So to protect my employer from liability I perform multiple blood sugar checks.

On July 19th I find out that I am now limited to 6 test strips per day! Because of the ACA!! My pharmacist and I are getting a medical pre…
