Have the ongoing economic problems impacted your ability to pay for diabetes care and supplies?

Poll dates: October 3 - 10, 2012
Total Votes: 69

As readers around the world know, the past several years have seen dramatic changes in the global economy, which are impacting families everywhere. Diabetes supplies can be expensive, even with insurance coverage, and we wanted to know if our readers were experiencing difficulty as a result of these economic problems.

Based on this poll, 42% of readers report being impacted at least somewhat -- about the same as last year's poll on this topic. Just over one-third (35%) are not impacted but are worried, and about one-fourth (23%) are not impacted.

If you are experiencing difficulty paying for your diabetes care supplies, discuss your situation with your diabetes team. They may be able to offer suggestions to help.
