I don't know how many other people have the "privlege" and "blessing" of reading the daily output from the FDA. Signed up a while back to track the Medrtron/Minimed progression, and other diabetes related things and made a discovery; we is in BIG trouble!!
The daily list of MAJOR medical equipment which is on recall, the number of drugs and foods which are being stopped due to damage or ingredients or "little blue balls" in them, the number of medical devices which have faulty switches, controls, catheters, etc is astounding.
I find it hard to believe that this is a new discovery of last few months.
Medicare payments have gone down to the point where companies cannot fill prescriptions for pump and meter supplies due to the max payment amounts or max permitted supplies.
My pharmacy has to order many of the drugs I (and MANY others) use regularly as they don't have them "in stock" (Potassium, insulin, blood pressure, etc),.
What is going on??
