How many weeks of diabetes supplies do you usually keep at home?

Poll dates: September 30 - October 7, 2001
Total Votes: 678

For people with diabetes, a steady, reliable source of diabetes medication and supplies can be a matter of life and death. Faced with uncertainty, such as the Y2K transition and the new challenges that face America and democracies around the world, it's natural for people to store up additional diabetes medications and supplies.

Just over one-third of our readers report keeping between three and fours weeks of supplies on hand at home. Just under one-third report keeping more than eight weeks of supplies on hand.
