Hi thereIs there anybody in South Africa that can perhaps give me some advice?I have a friend who has been type 1 diabetic for 10 years. Her mother left when she was 3 years old, and her dad doesn't really know how to help her. She is severely thin due to high blood sugars and always tired, and her kidneys are giving problems. She is very poor and cannot afford medical aid and hearin lies the problem. When she goes to the government clinic they only give her 5 strips to test with and 1 insulin pen for Actrapid and Protophane. This is rediculous!! How can you live with that only? If there is anyone in South Africa that might have some advice of where we can get more medication for her, please let me know urgently.
