Hi Everybody,

A few additions to my Tips section on getting financial aid with your diabetes care.

First, the correct link to the Medicare booklet showing diabetes benefits is here:

Second, you can check out this site: — a comprehensive and unbiased database of health care resources for artists, performers, freelancers and the self-employed. The info could be useful for anyone!

Third, see also: - a site to locate community health centers near you that offer services to low income families, the uninsured, those with limited English proficiency, etc.

Hope these links are helpful!

One thing my physician did was put my testing supplies on a prescription and my insurance (BC/BS) picked up the cost. I know supplies can be expensive.

My sugar goes up and down, have been controlling it with diet but I have been slacking off lately. If it is not better controlled then we will be looking at medication. My last fasting sugar reading was 117.
