Diabetes death rate a shocker


Following on from yesterday, there is so much we can do.

One of those things is : better insulins.

Arriving on the scene shortly in SA and already there all you first world folk, is degludec. Why is this an extraordinary insulin.

Well long have we hoped for these properties : less hypos, more even delivery, longer acting (thus forgiving if a dose is skipped), safe in the context of double dosing !!!

Yes yes and yes.

So why the tardiness in terms of medical aid re-imbursement?

Good question as I tell my 4 year old when she asks a good question.

Degludec in SA marketed as Tresiba – a wonderful new arrival on our market, folk I need the groundswell to convince the funders that this will SAVE them money and YOU your life and quality thereof. I can not do it by mine self 😉
