Tips for Advocacy:
*The National Drug Code Directory lists all over the counter and prescription products in the United States, including diabetes treatment technologies like Omnipod. The NDC number is a unique number that helps identify products in the United States, containing information about the manufacturer, the product, and the packaging. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) publishes a regularly updated list of all NDC numbers.
Sharing their story
Cherise was diagnosed with latent auto-immune diabetes in adults in 2004. Her advice is that you cannot always rely on your treating doctor to advocate on your behalf when living with diabetes. Your employer and current health literacy training can help you advocate on your own behalf. She encourages not only those living with Type 1 diabetes, but those with Type 2 as well, to ask for what they need and to share their story online through social media. People with diabetes are a community, and Cherise encourages you to speak up so that people around you can see what diabetes really looks like in the world.
