That’s one way to look at it but I do think there are still a lot of health care professionals that are in it because they want to help people not because of the money. You’ll have to excuse me, I’m not much of a capitalist and I guess I just disagree with companies profiting from chronic illness.
As I said, we do benefit from their products and trust me, I am very grateful for the technology. I remember testing my urine and animal insulin - I support the advancements and innovation factor but the mark up on products necessary for our survival is, in my opinion, way too inflated. I don’t agree with our health or quality of life having a price tag on it. Diabetes has become a billion dollar business - that’s a bit unsettling for me.
I admit it’s not an easy subject. In this particular case I just think offering it for $100 less to new ‘customers’ (and I dislike using that vocabulary but here we are) is a little disrespectful to its current ‘customers.’
That’s all - just my opinion.
