King Government

While I’m always ready to criticize the Provincial Government I’m also prepared to give credit where credit is due. Recently I had an appointment at the Summerside diabetic clinic. This was to demonstrate and provide the Libre 2 blood sugar level checker to those who qualified. This is a small patch attached to back of the left arm. You just flash the monitor across the patch and get the blood level reading. No more pricking the finger, it is so much faster, easier and quite painless. However it is very expensive, not sure of actual costs but something like $200 every 28 days for the patches. Each patch lasts for fourteen days, and they come in packs of twos. The Provincial Government take care of the bulk of this fee based on income. As a retired senior on Canada pension, the patches cost me $10 each 28 days. So the government needs to be applauded for their involvement, being a diabetic is quite expensive and this is a great help. So thank you to Premier King and those involved in this generous scheme.
God Bless and keep reading.
