What Type 1 Diabetics Want You To Know


type 1 diabetics

Type 1 Diabetics can live very full lives, but stigma often clouds the true challenges they have to overcome. Here’s some of what you should know about T1D. 

FACT # ONE: 

Type 1 Diabetics have higher out of pocket costs than most. Equipment like alcohol swabs, needles, sharps containers, and much more add up each month.

If you’re a Type 1 Diabetic, take our Unmet T1D Needs Survey and tell us more about it. 

FACT # TWO:

The majority of Type 1 Diabetics have been encouraged by their insurer to use a medication other than the one their doctor initially prescribed.

Does that sound right? Tell us about your experiences with Step Therapy and Non Medical Switching by taking the Unmet T1D Needs Survey

FACT # THREE:

More Type 1 Diabetics have been abducted by aliens than Type 2 Diabetics. Wait! WHAT?!

It’s clear we need to hear from more of you to get our facts straight.

Get our Unmet T1D Needs Survey in front of a Type 1 Diabetic you know. Please, before we keep saying very silly things.
