Type 1 Diabetes patients struggle with rising Insulin costs
SEATTLE – Over the years, Nurse Practitioner Karen Aitken says she’s seen the price of the life-saving drug Insulin go up. “It was about $25 and now it’s about $250-350 per vial,” said Aitken. Type 1 patients like Karen were either born with it or developed the auto-immune disease later in life. She says her body doesn’t produce insulin at all.
