  •  novolin has been around for a very long time - (0+ / 0-)

    and it is inexpensive.  lantus, if i remember correctly, is a one shot a day insulin where novolin requires twice a day and testing.

    the strips and readers for relion are very inexpensive - there is NO reason for testers to be priced like the original calculators that cost $350 or the first cell phones that cost $1500 each (i know, i had one).

    the companies that charge high prices do it because they can.  diabetics don't have a choice NOT to test or buy insulin, so the "supply and demand" issues are moot.  the "captive audience" issue is very much alive!
