how to cure diabetes naturally

I’ve found I can handle certain thin crust pizzas. I like when they are cut in squares it’s easier to limit portions,  Pizza does make my sugar high, but I go for a Jog and everything normalizes, Plus, adding some veggies on top adds flavor and keeps the later protein rise down, Terrific insight, thanks for share and hope you continue to enjoy your new lease on life! God bless, Evidently every diabetes site is now a political site. What about the people that were hurt by the ACA? Or do their lives not matter. We have 3 T1s in our house. I spent $15 less than our monthly house payment today to pay for one single month of prescription drugs for us. We actually decreased our test strip usage to save costs (as we pay 20% of cost). Clearly, our family is an acceptable cost to reach others.
Depends. Thx to HIPAA in 96, most of the preexisting condition denials were nixed as long as you had continuous coverage. They usually tried, but couldn’t deny it or tack on crazy long waiting periods as long as you proved continuous coverage. A few exceptions applied depending on the type of prior insurance plan, but for the most part preexisting conditions got a lot more protection on 96. This is why I have kept (and will continue to keep) every continuous coverage letter, showing I’ve never had a day’s lapse since my birth in 1979. Of course, before then, it was a much difference insurance and healthcare marketplace, This is ridiculous, after watching premiums and deductibles skyrocket under the ACA, what makes you think that this new American health care act won’t be beneficial for diaAny idea yet how long the button battery lasts? I don’t like that change; those batteries are expensive and one more supply to keep on handetics? Yeah please keep your politics out of my health care.
Got this meter in late January, with battery at less than half charge… Still going. So, that’s the math on battery life I have so far. -Mike, They said it looks the same and feels the same which suggests it is still a luer lock and not proprietary. The big change appears to be reduced dead space which would support their claim of reduced insulin needed to fill and faster filling. Both of these are welcome moves for their system which was the slow kid on the block wrt infusion set change time and wasted insulin volume. They are likely closer to parity now.
If the above is correct, they still face a 2 part business challenge with their disposables. The first one is that their cartridge is rather complicated and thus more expensive to make vs a typical reservoir, yet it gets reimbursed at the same level. Thus, lower margins for them on the one disposable they can control. The 2nd being that their customers and more importantly their dealers are free to get the infusion sets from other sources and thus, Tandem misses out or could miss out on the more attractive part of the disposable business.
A few years back they were exploring the idea of making the set and cartridge into one permanently connected part to address these business issues. Thus far, they have opted not to go that route which is bad for them but good for their customers (it has perils of its own), So they are cutting the options for infusion sets to make more money by requiring customers buy their proprietary sets? Not to mention that it seems like it’s only a need because of a design flaw in the original pump design, “Helped” Express Scripts as we all know banned Novolog so I had to pay out of pocket for it for a year (until my employer switched to Caremark). They made me do step therapy for the asthma medication I’ve been on for years, so I got a respiratory infection. They weren’t able to get us covered January 1st, either due to a “data error.” I had to pay out of pocket until March when they finally fixed it. That said, I don’t want to sign my name to any comments.
My experience with Optumrx was frustrating and took weeks to sort out. They passed me off to various people with each one giving a different excuse to explain why my son’s supplies were no longer covered. It was always some other entity causing this issue, from the pharmacy filling it, to the insurance company, to the union, etc. Their primary focus seemed to be passing the blame elsewhere. They never did fix the issue, on their own. I had to contact the union, the insurance is provided through, to get real answers and action on the issue, CVS … is always awkward at best. I’ve multiple autoimmune illnesses, am on several long term medications in addition to insulin & other diabetes supplies & have had short term meds for one thing or another most years – and of all of those, only with one has the process been smooth … so long as you don’t count an unannounced switch to another company’s generic, which everyone does these days. With every other one, CVS has either refused to honor the full prescription (test strips), insisted on mail service with minimum orders (insulins), refused mail service (my opthalmic meds), arbitrarily refused to honor refills on valid prescriptions so that new scripts had to be sent in (most, one time or another) … and every step of the way, I’ve gotten inconsistent instructions & no explanations. Or, for that matter, any notification; I have to be sure to check my on-line account with them frequently, as they never notify me of cancellations, I’ve used both Express Scripts and CVS Caremark. In general I’m not a fan of CVS. Though I can’t say one is better or worse than the other. They both have revolving doors of formularies. Neither is easy to deal with.
