Hi I just recently moved near Gainesville , Fl. and I need to find a good doctor to manage my type 2. I don't have health insurance which makes it more difficult. If anyone has recommendations or suggestions ; I would really appreciate it.

When I didn't have health insurance this is how I managed my diabetes:
Found a free health clinic for check ups
Did my own A1C tests using the over the counter kits.
Bought my supplies online at they are cheap, especially their clearance section.
I got my insulin (humalog) for $40 (otherwise it would have been $115) at a free health clinic.
I was very diligent about monitoring my blood sugar and I think that helped me avoid complications.
