Getting your blood sugar tested is usually the first step toward diagnosing diabetes. As a person with diabetes (PWD), it’s likely you had a hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) test administered during a checkup or in response to symptoms of diabetes or prediabetes. But diagnosis isn’t the only time you need to test your blood sugar. For one, PWDs are used to checking their blood sugar themselves daily to keep tabs on their sugar levels.
As you make your way through your early twenties, either pursuing a degree or starting your career, some of you may have been able to use your parent’s insurance plan to help manage the cost of treating diabetes. After all, insurance for diabetes is one of the most important ways to ensure you can keep up with the treatment plans your healthcare provider prescribes.
