Type 1 or type 1.5 (LADA) diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
Help with testing supplies. I'm looking for a doctor who will care and take the time to listen and want to help me with all of the complications that I have to live with.
Date diagnosed
December 1, 1979

Tell us more about you (optional)
Diagnosed with Diabetes 1979, 35yrs type 1
I have Gastroparesis, High Blood pressure, Sluggish intestinal track and bowel system. I've been going through Menopause for 7 years... still.
I'm bothered that most doctors pass me off and would rather not deal with my complications or are unwilling to help or admit that they are actually not educated enough and not willing to further their own studies & knowledge. I'm looking for a doctor who will care and take the time to listen and want to help.

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

This is a Link describing the Disability Tax Credit

http://www.diabetesadvocacy.com/DTC.htm

If your Doctor has never done a DTC application for a diabetic before, you should check to see if your Endo has. It has to be filled out very carefully, otherwise it runs a high risk of being rejected.
