The following letter to the editor asks Diabetes Health subscribers to share their experiences with Symlin. If you use Symlin, please tell us about it in the “Comments” section. Have you had more success in managing your diabetes with Symlin? How has your insurance company treated you regarding your prescription cost?
Hello DH readers,
About a month and a half ago, I began Symlin. So far, so good! My after-meal blood sugars have pretty much been in my target range, and I’m using half the insulin I would normally use for my mealtime bolus! I’m hoping that I will also experience a little weight loss.
I am interested in hearing about the experience of other people with Symlin, including insurance copays. For my first prescription of two pens, I was socked with a copay of $144! That’s even including the $10 discount I received from the Symlin support group, which is free to all who apply.
