Public Funding For Insulin Pumps Could Save Nova Scotia Over One Million Dollars

Public Funding For Insulin Pumps Could Save Nova Scotia Over One Million Dollars

Public funding for insulin pumps could save Nova Scotia over one million dollars Personal Costs of Managing Diabetes Reaches Breaking Point HALIFAX, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - The Canadian Diabetes Association released a new report today that shows a provincial government investment into a publicly funded insulin pump program could improve health outcomes for Nova Scotians with diabetes and save the province up to $1.4 million by 2032. "People living with type 1 diabetes are at high-risk of developing serious long-term complications, such as kidney failure, heart attack, and limb amputation," said Michael Cloutier, President and CEO, Canadian Diabetes Association. "The Economic Benefit of Public Funding for Insulin Pumps in Nova Scotia report shows that switching from daily insulin injections to an insulin pump can reduce complications and increase the quality of life for people living with type 1 diabetes while, at the same time, save Nova Scotia's healthcare system more than a million dollars over the next 20 years." Nova Scotia is currently one of the few provinces in Canada that does not offer any funding for insulin pumps. People with type 1 diabetes who are clinically eligible to use a pump to better manage their disease face average out-of-pocket expenses totaling between $4,000 and $7,000 per year, which are costs that few can afford. "Since my nine year old daughter Danielle started using an insulin pump, we feel relieved and extremely fortunate," says Halifax resident Jay Cassivi. "This device has been a life changer for our entire family. Danielle has lost that fear factor that was so prominent when it came to all decisions made around her diabetes. The insulin pump has restored the 'child' in Danielle." Insulin pump users are not the only people in the province Continue reading >>

on. I've been donating gorgeous clothes and household items for a long time now. I'm in the process of moving and scheduled a pickup at my house for a large amoun...t of clothing and household items. I had to wait almost 2 weeks for them to pick it up. I left instructio was on our back doorstep. Came home, nothing was picked up. Called them to ask why - they said the driver didn't see anything. I told them I left instructio was out back. She made a note on file and to the driver that during their next pick up, to make sure they go to the back step. Had to wait another week for the next pick up. Came home, nothing was taken for the second time! Called back yet again and I was told she saw the note on file that pick up instructio ns were left for the driver to pick everything up on the back step but that they don't have permission to enter people's back yards. I said, "the two other people I spoke with said it was no problem because I gave permission to do so" and she agreed. She put an "emergency " request in to have a driver pick it up asap and that someone would be in touch with me right away. I haven't heard a word in 3 days. I said I'm moving in 4 days and this stuff needs to go. They must not need the donations that badly afterall! Here's a suggestion g claiming how easy it is to have someone pick up your used goods, hire more drivers to actually pick items up in a timely fashion and read notes on the file! What a joke.

New Guidelines Increase Screening For Type 2 Diabetes

New Guidelines Increase Screening For Type 2 Diabetes

New guidelines increase screening for Type 2 diabetes New guidelines increase screening for Type 2 diabetes The Canadian Diabetes Association has released new guidelines that will ensure more people are checked for the disease on a regular basis. Nova Scotia has one of the highest rates of diabetes Posted: Apr 09, 2013 6:19 AM AT | Last Updated: April 9, 2013 The Canadian Diabetes Association is calling for increased screening of diabetes. Dr. Ali Imran explains why. 3:28 The Canadian Diabetes Association has released new guidelines that will ensure more people are checked for the disease on a regular basis, which could be lifechanging for people in Nova Scotia. On Monday, the Canadian Diabetes Association unveiled its 2013 Clinical Practice Guidelines to prevent and manage diabetes. The new guidelines suggest people over 40 should be screened every three years. Those at high risk should be tested every year. The association also wants to implement a blood test that does not require fasting. Current methods require patients to fast for 12 hours before the test. The association hopes eliminating that requirement will make screening and early diagnosis simpler. "By identifying these people earlier and targeting therapies earlier in particular helping them improve their lifestyle we would be able to delay or avoid complications of diabetes," said Dr. Ali Imran, an endocrinologist who worked on the guidelines. "We have to understand that the prevalence of diabetes in Canada has increased remarkably almost double over the past decade." He said Nova Scotia, Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador have the highest prevalence rates of diabetes. Diabetes can bring complications including stroke, blindness and amputation. "The screening is critical," said Imran. "We would encourag Continue reading >>

Box 792, Apex, NC 27502, USA The Disability Tax Credit is a credit offered by Revenue Canada to those of who have a severe mental or physical impairment which markedly restricts the basic activities of daily living or requires dedicated time for Life Sustaining Therapy (Therapy that must occur at least 3 times per week for more than 14 hours per week). Revenue Canada further requires that the eligible person have an impairment that has lasted or is expected to last for a period of 12 continuous months. Further, Revenue Canada notes "For the purposes of the disability amount, Life Sustaining Therapy is any treatment for a disease or a disorder that, if withheld would prevent the functioning on one or a group of vital organs to sustain human life." There are some who do not wish to be labelled as "disabled" or have their child carry such a label however the financial relief provided by the Federal government may be accepted and desired by some families. If you or your child use an intensive insulin management system, you may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit because you require Life Sustaining Therapy.
