There are all sort of articles and blog post out there now about how expensive it has become. The Children With Diabetes site has a survey you an take along these lines.

So while we are fighting to get the prices down (and we had better start fighting) we also need to let people know they do not have to die because the only thing they think they can use is the more costly insulin.
