With no insurance and low income you qualify for free insulin directly from pharmaceutical company patient assistance. I will contact you with more info

Sorry to here BUT if you are Type1 and your doctor will not right you a script or send you to another doctor no matter if you have no money or not. That sounds like a case for a lawyer. If you are Type1 you NEED insulin to live. We all do. Go to the county.

At the beginning of this conversation you mentioned that you are type 1. Type 2 makes a big difference. Way more treatment options.

Walmart has a meter Relion for under $15 and strips are under $10 for 50, dual packs are also available for under $20 that is for a hundred. I've been using those as I test four times a day. Try it.
