Type 2 Diabetes and the Disability Tax Credit

Posted on February 8, 2013 at 7:32am 0 Comments

I have recently found out about the tax certificate and would like some help from the GURUS here(LOL)My doctor who specializes in diabetes is an older man and has some doubts that the Tax Credit can be applied to type 2 diabetes. In addition he asked me for a list of things that would apply to the life-sustaining therapy section and the 14 hour rule. I take insulin and victoza via injection ,metformin and gliclazide orally.Any and all help gratefully appreciated and accepted.

Good that you're on top of things pro!! Yes....looking for a more "aware" doc is a good move, and if your family physician fits the bill..even better!
Talk to someone at the CDA...many offices in Toronto. Main one downtown on Yonge I think. Check on-line.

Welcome home pro...fellow Ontarian. Holy Moly...your doc needs help! Life sustaining....isn't insulin life-sustaining therapy lol? What about meds? Life style....all of these are NEEDED in order to maintain stable bg, and to prevent complications. Is that NOT life-sustaining, regardless of Type 1 or Type 2? What the heck is wrong with that doctor!!! Geez!
