Assistance is Coming for Young People With Diabetes.

Manitoba Health Minister Audrey Gordon has announced two new programs to pay for advanced glucose monitors and insulin pumps for individuals aged 25 years and younger.  Gordon says she knows firsthand the challenges faced by young Manitobans with Type One diabetes especially since taking the finger prick challenge and that was pricking her finger or fingers ten times in one day and it really allowed her to see firsthand what individuals suffering with diabetes are having to deal with on a daily basis.  She notes she does have family members that have Type One diabetes and she can tell you they’ve had a lot of discussions since the finger prick challenge about having to take your glucose measures throughout the day so these investments will greatly improve the quality of life for young people with diabetes.

             

The government estimates more than one thousand Manitobans may seek coverage for advanced glucose monitors which comes into effect September 28th and up to 200 more who will be able to use insulin pumps with no upfront costs under this program effective this November.
