PETITION: Tell the FDA That a Less Expensive Insulin Should Be Made Available as Soon as Possible

We should tell Acting Commissioner of the FDA Stephen Ostroff that the approval process of generic insulin needs to be expedited. Diabetics need generic insulin to help bring costs down for a costly disease.

I had signed---but noted. Thanks Marcia. I'm in hopes and do believe that soon we'll be using natural alternatives with no side-effects to balance sugar. Turmeric, for instance. There are other herbs, spices, seeds that do this. I was borderline diabetic 3 years ago and have a nice balance now--also was able to get off both a high blood pressure and a high cholesterol med--by replacing them with "Padma", an ancient Tibetan formula. Info online---I first heard of it from Dr. Nan Fuchs, Editor-in-chief, "Women's Health Letter" and author of many books. She has a great pamphlet on Padma, but info is also online. It also has increased my circulation.

Treating diabetes is very costly The only insulin currently available is all brand name. There isn't a generic version because each time advancements are made it renews the patent thereby not allowing there to be a generic. One patent has run out which has allowed for a generic version to be submitted to the FDA.

We have more and more people coming down with diabetes; it seems the price should be coming down, anyway. Unfortunately, Big Pharma is more greedy than ever. Yes, noted and signed. Thanks, Marcia.
