Placed on Humalog/Lantus 6 months ago. Had fasting BS of 380-500. Now have fasting BS of 210-250. 160 units daily with little effect. Hit donut hole and pharmacy wants $225 per 5 pack. Without supplemental Medicare, donut hole cost is $555.30. Who can afford this? Will have to end diabetes meds due to extremely high cost, and only minor results.
