Welcome to our Website! This site is dedicated to all things diabetes, and related expenses.
Managing diabetes is a sometimes life-long endevour, and can obviously be very stressful. This isn't helped by the sometimes unbelievable medical costs associated with the disease. And I'm not even talking about doctor visits, copays and deductibles…I'm referring to the cost of the required medical supplies! Glucose meters (testers), Blood Glucose testing strips, Insulin pump supplies and needles/syringes are just some of the costly medical items needed to manage diabetes.
And while we are all extremely grateful for the science and medical breakthroughs that have made such crucial medical supplies available to manage diabetes (it wasn't all that long ago that these high-tech monitors, strips and other supplies weren't readily available), the fact is that these supplies are certainly NOT inexpensive, and the costs continue to go up every year!
