What Is Diabetes Costing You?

Chronic Pain Lexington KY Elderly Man

Living with diabetes is costing you a small fortune

So it should come as no surprise to you that it’s one of the most expensive chronic diseases to treat, and our chiropractic team in Lexington knows it. Diabetes treatments weigh in at a whopping cost of 100 billion dollars per year. Depending on your insurance coverage you’re paying upwards of a couple hundred dollars per refill for your prescription of Victoza. Insulin pumps make an even larger dent in your medical expenses at about $6,000. Do you avoid daily testing, like many diabetics, due to the high cost of testing strips for glucose meters?

Depending on your meter, you are paying anywhere from $100 to $300 per month. Add in doctor visits and hospital stays for wound care, ketoacidosis and hyperglycemia and your diabetes is costing you about $15,000 a year. It’s a heavy financial burden, and you’re just trying to survive the diagnosis that, if left unchecked, could result in the loss of your limbs, organ functions, and eyesight.

Your budget isn’t suffering alone as you work to manage your diabetes. Living with this disease is taking a toll on your quality of life as you try to maintain your health. Almost a third of people diagnosed with diabetes experience depression from the significant changes they must undertake to stay alive. Learning that you must drastically change your life to avoid amputation is a traumatic event. Now your life runs by the clock of diabetes. Testing every morning and before each meal, while juggling an already busy schedule just makes your days more hectic.

Daily management of your diabetes can be frustrating and suffocating no matter how much literature about the disease you gather from your doctor’s office and online. If you’re like most of the millions of people with diabetes, you’re probably managing a family at the same time, and your diabetes diagnosis changes their lives as well. Your family and friends may struggle with understanding how much your life must change to manage your disease and educating them through this process can put a strain on your relationships.

Your diabetes bill will also take your physical health as payment

Extreme fatigue can rob you of the motivation you need to meet the exercise goals that help keep your diabetes in check. Are you feeling neuropathy pain in your legs and feet? The damage diabetes causes to your nerves can leave your limbs burning and tingling with a million pinpricks of agony night and day making it difficult for you to remain mobile. Diabetes attacks your body and puts you at a higher risk for heart disease, stroke, hearing loss and kidney damage.
