• Work emergency

    Guy at work who is diabetic. Has no insulin. Sugar level was 545. Felt like he was going to pass out. We got it lowered to 225. Next day it's at 245 and slowly rising again. He is refusing to leave work unless he just has to. Any suggestions

    If you're his co-worker, talk to his boss...
    If you're his employer, have him sign a waiver that precludes him from suing you or filing worker's comp. You can't fix stupid.

        "Patient Assistance Programs
        Most pharmaceutical companies offer financial assistance programs to persons who have trouble affording their medications and supplies.

        Each program has specific criteria that must be satisfied in order for an individual to be considered eligible for a financial assistance program."

        http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/health-insurance/prescription-assistance.html

        Can this "guy" at work read?
        1. Click on the link, above
        2. Find the website of his insulin manufacturer
        3. In the search box, type, "Patient Assistance Program"
        4. Go to the link and print out the application
        5. Fill out the application and copy all required support documents
        6. Place said documents in an envelope
        7. Place envelope in mailbox

        Nothing "good" comes easy. But, if there's a will, there's a way.

        Now, I've shown the "guy" a way. Ball's in his court.

    Why doesn't he buy Regular and N at walmart? It's not the best for control but it's cheap
