I was reading the article from Nick Masercola about finding a cure for Diabetes and he mentioned that on of the biggest issues with being a Diabetic, and there are many, is the cost of medication. Trying to keep your blood sugars under control is hard enogh but the high cost of medication is the other hurdle. I am a type 1 and am insulin dependant and my insulin went up $45.00 in a 3 month period. Thank God I have insurance, but what about the people who don't. The cost of that insulin without insurance is $650.00 for 3 months supply. Something needs to be done, not just for a cure but the outrageous cost of drugs just to stay alive. Is there any place someone can go for help to get their meds if they don't have insurance to cover them? Maybe we should post on here to help people. I think it's a shame that in the U.S. that people die because they can't afford the meds to keep them alive. Just would like to know what others think about this or their experiences.
Thanks and Merry Christmas.
