  • Items 2 to 8 are only for diabetics who are on drugs which cause hypo.

    A diabetic with no medicines just needs a glucose meter and testing strips.

  • I do not agree with U. Every 5th diabetic is an Indian. There should be taken care from the early stage. Consequences what can happen if U do not follow rules and regulations are necessary to know. It is a chronical disease..

  • As a type 2 you need glucometer only. Many can't even afford that forget about your long list of costly gadgets.

    Why would a NIDDM T2 who is on a LCHF diet need items 2,3,4,5,7,8. Can you explain technically ?

  • That is true, that many people cannot afford the items 2-8. This is recommended by the medindia.net, not my words. ." Diabetes identification card." U can copy, fill in U personal data and leave in U wallet..


    I do not want to argue any further.

    Thank you
