How do you usually obtain your insulin?Poll dates: February 10 - 17, 2008
Total Votes: 460
Amost two-thirds of CWD visitors report obtaining insulin from a local store -- 62% from a local pharmacy, and 4% from a local discount store such as Wal-Mart, essentially the same as in previous years (see table below). Of the remaining visitors, 27% report using a mail order or online pharmacy to obtain their insulin. For those who use mail order:
- 51% (67/131) use mail order to save money
- 11% (14/131) use mail order for convenience
- 38% (50/131) use mail order because their insurance makes them
This table summarizes how people have responded to this poll over the past several years:

Because temperature extremes can damage insulin, we're interested in hearing from mail order users about their experiences with mail order delivery of insulin.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
