I have struggled with my weight for a long time. I have also had to ration my insulin due to financial strain and no insurance. When not staying on top of my blood sugar I lose weight but when I am staying on the top with my medication. In the past three years I have gone from a size 20 to a size 8 and would love to stay where I am. I cannot afford to be buying clothes every month.

Contact the maker of your insulin, most companies have help to pay for your insulin. IF necessary have the MD change the type Insulin you use to one of a company that has help either free or reduced rates. I know that Novo Nordisk has a plan for free insulin and supplies and probably others as well Like LadyPandora407 said do an internet search. You can also check with your states/counties Public Health Department, Catholic Charities may be of assistance. I hope you find some help. take care…Polly

Have you checked on patient assistance programs for your insulin and/or disease? Do a search on the internet you should be able to find help for your medications
