【What do you think of such a diabetic? ]
I got a phone call after get off work today. After it was over, I was filled with emotion, and I shared my thoughts with everyone. If you agree, please like it. If you disagree, just brush it over and smile.
This is a call from a lady. She said that her husband is 46 years old and has diabetes for 10 years. , and irregular medication. A few days ago, my eyes were blurry, and I went to the hospital to check and found that it was fundus hemorrhage and diabetic retinopathy. Up to now, the treatment has cost 80,000 yuan. She said that their family is not very well-off, and her husband is reluctant to spend money on medical treatment. Now, she doesn’t know what to do in the future.
I answered her questions and gave her a few words of comfort along the way.
What I feel is:
1. This patient is too selfish. I only take care of my own food and drink, never take the advice of my family seriously, enjoy myself, and leave the difficulties and burdens to my family when something goes wrong. Bleeding from the fundus, there is a risk of blindness, and the future life may need to be taken care of by others. Moreover, the cost of one treatment cost more than 80,000 yuan, and the living standard of the whole family may be affected. Just 46 years old, when is it a head?
2. If you are reluctant to spend money on medical treatment, why are you willing to drink every day? And more than 80,000 yuan is only the initial treatment cost, not including the future cost, nor the treatment cost of diabetic nephropathy. As for the treatment cost, let’s settle the account. According to the ideal treatment plan, the hypoglycemic drug “Golden Triangle” biguanide + Liejing + peptides, it is less than 700 yuan per month, and it will not cost 80,000 yuan in 10 years. Of course, this is not the only plan, and other drugs may cost less, but no matter which plan, as long as the blood sugar is controlled to the standard for a long time, avoiding complications is king. In the early days, I was reluctant to see a doctor to save a small amount of money. As a result, I spent a lot of money after complications. The key is that even if I spend a lot of money, I can’t buy health.
This is how many people with diabetes return to poverty.
