Diabetes can no longer be used as an excuse

See also

If you have been diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, it is time to get a handle on your condition. Insurances, with the new provisions in law, can no longer deny you if you have diabetes. You will then have no excuse, for yourself, to get the care that is necessary to have optimal health with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
You can get correctly screened for diabetes and know which one you are dealing with. Inaccurate diagnosis delays proper treatment (whether insulin immediately or pill form of medication) and increases your risk of experiencing acute and long term complications.
While you are trying to decide how to best care for yourself in 2014 and beyond, with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, I highly recommend that you check out American Diabetes Association website, including the links to help you understand healthcare in 2014 and diabetes at http://www.diabetes.org/advocate/our-priorities/health-care/
The American Diabetes Association continues to advocate for those with Type 1, Type 2, and other forms of diabetes regardless of age, sex, socioeconomic status, religion, and any other that may separate the human race. On the website above is information regarding how Medicare and Medicaid will be affected, in 2014, as well.
If you are in any doubt regarding the resources that are available to you, please contact your local and/or national diabetes association. Here in Columbus, the website for Central Ohio Diabetes Association is http://diabetesohio.org/. Be mindful that there may be free classes for you to attend to help you better take care of yourself and new classes for 2014. Having Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes gives you reason enough to learn as much as you can on how to prevent health complications. It is something to take seriously now and in 2014 and thereafter.

Take care and Better Health now and in 2014,
