LAST MONTH’S SURVEY QUESTION:
In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked you to share how the Trump political environment has affected your health.
Hmmm… Overall, 49% report being worse off, and 2% report being better off. Given that fixing America’s health care system was one of the pillars of the President’s campaign… well… you can do the math. THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION: This month, along the lines of my Think Like A Pancreas blog, we would like to know:
What do you think about the government’s role in furthering the treatment of medical conditions like diabetes?
Stringent government regulation is ESSENTIAL for ensuring that only safe, effective treatments are made available. Protect the consumer! The government needs to get out of the way and allow companies to develop & market new products and devices. Let consumers make their own choices! Much better collaboration needs to exist between government and industry.
