In hopes that we can have a healthy discussion about the interview here, what are your thoughts on JDRF’s New Direction, Mr. Brewer's Thoughts On The Cure, And Progress On The Artificial Pancreas Project?
...and, if the current crop of T1 kids are going to enjoy things more when they grow up, I think that investment in improving treatments, not in sucking up to insurers being allowed to cut corners by making up fake science to buttress their strip limitations and prevent people from getting pumps and CGMs should be a national concern and that it is reasonable to expect the JDRF to invest some of their resources in advancing extant modalities to their highest potential.
I have had pretty good luck with insurers on the strips without a problem, however if you look at the excess supplies on sale on ebay and other outlets, you can see why they are hesitant. If one asks for more than they need and then sells it on e-bay all they do is make life difficult for the rest of us. My insurer even asked me are you OK with the number of strips. If you need more this is what you do. I thought they were pretty classy about it. But I guess it is popular to blame so many of the ills on the fat cats at the insurance companies making obscene profits on our disease!
