Three Letters Re: Insulin Dependent Diabetics When TSHTF

 When I treat people with Type 1 diabetes I routinely mention the need to stockpile and safeguard insulin and diabetes supplies. When the patient is agreeable I write prescriptions for extra supplies on the spot. One of my patients told me about Wal-Mart's ReliOn brand of regular insulin, which is about half the price of other U-100s. Those SB readers who are physicians and other healthcare providers have an obligation to their patients to inform them and help them obtain the medication and supplies they will need when TSHTF. - Dr. John in in Arizona

First, many thanks to AERC for a very well-written article on Type 1 diabetics in SHTF situations. It was greatly appreciated and well written.

My youngest son (now 7) was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic about 2 months after I read [the novel] One Second After by William R. Forstchen (the daughter of the main character is a Type 1 diabetic), and along with getting used to our "new normal" lifestyle, I have also been trying to get prepped over the past 18 months in case SHTF.
