    Some Patients With Diabetes Turning To Black Market For Insulin

    Post by graham64 on Sun Nov 04 2018, 21:29

    ARVADA, Colo. (CBS4) – A new government report outlines the rise in cost of life-saving insulin. The price has doubled in the last six years, after tripling the decade before that. In the face of such increases, some patients living with diabetes are turning to a black market of sorts to get their insulin and diabetes supplies.

    The sheer greed of big pharma is putting lives at risk in the interests of profit  Evil or Very Mad

    No wonder they are so against low carb diets, Type 1s can reduce their dose and Type 2s can often come off it altogether. I've known some Type 2s who took so much insulin it would stun a horse or kill a Type 1 stone dead, yet many were able to reduce or eliminate it.
