I just did the math on how much money I spent this 2012 for my diabetes. I included doctor visits and labs and prescriptions and even glucose tablets.
It came out to $1000. And I’d like to quickly note that if I ate the standard American diet (thus needing more insulin and strips) I’d have spent almost $2000.
Anyway, not bad, right? Or is it? I’ve had diabetes so long I don’t even know anymore.
Recalling what others mention spending I think I’m one of the lucky ones. Still, I know an extra $1000 would have done my family some good.
But mom being healthy does the family tons of good.
I’m really curious, how much did you spend on your diabetes this year?
