Keeping medications in stock and up-to-date is a challenge in normal public health circumstances, and adding in the COVID-19 pandemic concerns exacerbates this issue.

We know this might seem like an unusual poll question, but we ask because our community has anecdotally shown that accessing more than a month's worth of supplies at a time can be difficult, for insurance and cost issues, among other hurdles. This poll shows that the majority of our community has 2 - 3 months' worth of supplies, and that there is a need for more programs that increase access.

We have information on resources that are currently available in terms of accessing specific diabetes medications; we hope this helps.

Stay safe, friends.  For life.
