Nice to meet you all. I've had diabetes since 2005 type 2 and most of my family has type 1. I will be attending the Call to Congress with the American Diabetes Association any concerns I should bring to the table? Other then affordable insulin?

Home health nursing care for children /parents who struggle with control ! Not fair a simple gastrointestinal tube kid can get nursing care but not a child who has several blood sugar checks administration and carb counts, danger of possible lows! Thank you so much for being an advocate!

Yes!! That ALL Pump and CGM supplies should be considered preventive just like ALL type 2 medications in tablet form!! Type 1 isn't preventable and yet costs more than Type 2 medications. Type 1 use to be called Juvenile Diabetes but how can Juveniles afford the cost of insulin and now pump and CGM supplies that have been shown to provide better care to not only type 1's but type 2's as well!
