    got T2 diabetes, got some card giving me free prescriptions, including stuff that has nothing to do with diabetes, such as antibiotics or hayfever pills

    test now and then, helps to confirm the foods am eating are ok, or not

    exercise has dropped my BP from 140 to 120

    the statin like pill has had no effect on me, will give it a few months more and may well drop it

    Once you are diagnosed diabetic all your prescriptions are free. The card is an exemption card.
