I’ve read into a lot of these discussions and come across a few great tips, along with what the training told me at our first meeting. However does anyone have any suggestions they wished they had known when they first started?
I’ve never used a pump before and I’m newly diagnosed (in Oct 2010), so this is still fairly new but I’ve been told by all of my doctors I’m doing better than most at this point! I’m still in my “honeymoon” phase.
Oh, and does anyone know the cheapest place to purchase FreeStyle test strips? I can get them at only 30% through my insurance and that’s about $0.40 a piece but anyone know of it cheaper?
Also: I’m about 2 hours from the Canadian border. Has anyone tried to purchase insulin from there before, and how does it work if so?
Last thing! I’m a student and don’t really have the money to purchase diabetes supplies. I’m borrowing from my parents right now. Do you know of any programs like “financial aid” for diabetics?
Any help is greatly appreciated! I’m so glad I found this site!
