Sometimes I think diabetes it is the Rodney Dangerfield of health. Unfortunately, it isn't a joke.
People with diabetes can thrive. By engaging early, we minimize complications, costs, and deaths. We need the appropriate tools and medications to be successful.
Join me in calling on Congress to maintain the prohibition on pre-existing conditions, like diabetes, being grounds to exclude people from health care coverage.
It is easy.
Not only do we need to work with our doctors to care for diabetes. We need to work with our elected officials to maintain access to coverage. We need respect.
