I bought five of the Star Solo Pens of the Lantus insulin today; the cost was $227.30, but my insurance co-pay was only $45.00, saving me $182.30. I also bought five of the Humalog Kwik-Pens for a total cost of $346.99, with an insurance co-pay also of $45.00, thus saving me $301.99. I am retired and I live on a fixed income. What do people do who do not have insurance or help from family members? My blood glucose levels run in the 200 range and I test five times a day. I take 50 units of the Lantus insulin in the morning; and then I take the Humalog insulin on a sliding scale depending on my blood sugar levels. My biggest complaint is the constant, never-ending pain in both my feet from the diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
