Many people with diabetes are concerned about how they would manage without access to insulin or other medications when the pharmaceuticals run out in a grid down scenario. Below is an excellent article written by Joe Alton, M.D. (aka Dr. Bones from DoomandBloom.net) about Diabetes and Survival. It’s not just an article, it’s an excellent five part series covering everything from type 1 prevention to substances that you can grow in your garden that could possibly prevent life-threatening high sugar states. There is even an article on how to make insulin. I highly recommend you read the whole series.
