SUM Reader Needs a Hand!
Hey again. I received a question from a reader I'll call "NC Mom" and "NC Daughter," but it's out of my geographic grasp. Maybe one of you can help? Here's her question:
"Kerri, my 28 year old daughter (who has diabetes) and I love your blog. I have a question I am not sure you can help with, but it's worth asking ...
Do you know of any resources to help preggo diabetics in North Carolina? We are so excited that she is pregnant, but also are concerned about the costs. She has to see her Dr. every week with a $50 co-pay, since he is a specialist.
I know the costs are going to continue to sky rocket, with pump supplies, test strips, etc. I am just reaching to everyone I know (and don't know) and asking about resources. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!"
I edited out some things from the email, but one point to make is that our pregnant North Carolina reader is employed, but her insurance has a wicked high deductible and her income is above the poverty level, so she doesn't qualify for Medicaid. Do you guys know of any North Carolina resources - or ones she can tap from the Internet or phone - that can help NC Daughter maintain a healthy pregnancy with diabetes? Leave it in the comments section.
Thanks in advance! I appreciate all of your help.
