Keep the comments flowing to the FDA Meter Guidance dockets. Currently 211+107 = 318 comments and climbing.
Want to learn more? FDA is holding a conversation with the DOC.
Yesterday it came to my attention that Arizona's legislature is currently - as in right this moment - in the process of deciding whether to approve a budgetary amendment that would restore insulin pump coverage for the state's adult insulin-dependent Medicaid recipients. (Currently once you turn 21, AZ's Medicaid won't cover your pump, no matter how crucial it is for your care.) If you are transitioning of a pump you know well and on to MDI you most unlikely are preoccupied and least likely to have time advocate for yourself. And AZ is one of only two states - other than Alabama - not to provide this coverage.I am trying to get people from all corners of the DOC to ask their twitter followers to send tweets to the relevant AZ politicians (and journalists) TODAY to encourage them to include this amendment in the House version of the AZ budget. These should be encouraging tweets, not disparaging (at least not at this point!), lest we hurt this budding chance at an amendment the AZ's house..Can you guys help? I wrote a blog post at ASweetLife with more details (and the relevant twitter handles & email addresses) here:http://asweetlife.org/
