would like to highlight the government removing the subsidy for blood testing strips. Diabetics need very frequent daily blood testing. The cost of 100 strips without insurance is $110-$179. Outcome: reduced blood glucose testing and more hospital admissions from hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic (high blood sugar or low blood sugar) reactions, ketoacidosis, coma, ...or death because people didn't know their levels. items to wear for the grade of 5th graduation purpose
If you are so inclined, I am asking that FB friends please put this as their status for one hour. Think of someone you know or love who has or has had diabetes. To honor those who have fought or are fighting diabetes. Don't type anything. Don't even comment.
Hope to see it as your status. Copy and paste, don't share.
My father was a type one diabetic and I know first hand how much he depended on his test strips.
