Re: [IP] JDF Conference



Good luck in Washington. Please let Congress know how much we would like to
see more done to help Diabetics to get better health insurance to help pay
for pump supplies. I am a SC State Employee and thankfully my insurance does
pay for 85 per cent of my supplies but it would be nice to get a supplement
that did not cost an arm and a leg to pay for the remaining 15 per cent.
Also see if you can find out about a monitor that may be able to be used
with pumps as an alarm to let you know what your BS are and when your BS is
dropping too fast.  Thanks so much. My Email address is email @ redacted I
live in
Florence SC.
