Up To 51% Off Lilly Insulin Through Blink Health

By Lynn Kennedy, Abigail Dove, and Helen Gao Lilly announces new program, in partnership with Express Scripts, to provide insulin directly to people with diabetes and high out of pocket drug expenses On January 1, Lilly launched a first-of-its-kind program, in partnership with Express Scripts, that offers significant discounts on brand name Lilly insulin to people in the USA with diabetes and high out-of-pocket costs. The program, which shows discounts of up to 51% for some Lilly insulins on Blink Health, will be most impactful for those with high deductible health plans or no insurance [Editor's Note: the original announcement stated that it would be up to a 40% discount on Lilly insulins]. Hopefully, it will also be the first of many efforts to make insulin more affordable; another insulin maker, Novo Nordisk, has already expressed its support for Lilly’s move to spearhead this insulin discount program. Blink Health was originally developed as a tool to help people purchase generic medications at a discount.

    Falling a sleep after eating

    What ever I eat I fall asleep almost straight after I feel as if I pass out. It is worst if I eat sugar or high carbs, I'm pre-diabetic but I'm wondering if I have hypoglycaemia. I have my blood sugar taken one a year at the hospital but I still feel it's not normal to keep falling a sleep I feel very headachy when I wake up some times a bit shaky but that's rear. Anyone else have the same problem?

    Hi,
    I can't say to be fair, but I have read about people with Hypoglycaemia having those symptoms. I have had certain similar symptoms, where I've woke up and haven't a clue why, a couple of times, my glucometer hasn't been able to get a reading, just reading 'lo'.
    Have you a food diary and a glucometer?
    This would track what is happening to your blood glucose levels.
    Wether certain foods cannot be tolerated and exacerbate your symptoms.
    Are you on meds or diet only? As meds that intentionally bring down bloods can give you hypos or symptoms of hypos, fluctuations in your blood levels would also raise blood levels.
    Do you think you have lowered your carbs enough to offset the symptoms?
    If you do have a glucometer, monitor your blood levels, pre meal, after one hour, then two hours, and if possible three hours, that would also give you information of how the food is effecting your levels.
    Best wishes

    @Lilliepop Often, people cite that as something they suffered from before a diabetes diagnosis (falling asleep after meals or feeling sleepy).
    Could you buy a blood glucose meter and do a few tests?
    And would you like me to move this to the Ask A Question section where you should get more replies?
