I was onces at a pre diabetic state,
I cut my carbs drastically & my
A1c. Dropped from 6.4 to 5.1
All within a month.
Diabetes does not have to be
Progressive like some say.
You are in control by your low
Carb food choices. Im living proof.
Hi, Insurance can definitely affect access to health care, and even how doctors will manage patients. Lack of insurance can also have big implications with regards to access to healthcare, choices of medication, access to technology, etc.
I have heard of many specific issues including no. of test strip issues, choice of meds, access to testing etc.
Getting around this can require a supportive doctor who may be able to appeal against the system, or accessing services outside of the insurance system.... for example test strips may be purchased privately often at less cost.
I live in a country where it is rare to have insurance and access to medical supplies is typically limited by cost. I buy cheaper test strips from an on-line company at less than 1/2 the price from local drug stores. With regards to insulin, I have no choice.... I just have to buy at the prevailing rate.
