JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Some diabetics are not as protected as they should be from the disease. 

According to a study published Monday in the “Annals of Internal Medicine” journal, 1.3 million people with diabetes rationed the amount of Insulin they took in 2021. 

The findings are based on nearly 1,000 diabetics who use Insulin. 

Researchers say people who said they skipped doses or took smaller doses were considered to be rationing. 

People who do not have health insurance were the most likely to ration, according to the study. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 37-million U.S. adults have diabetes and it’s the seventh most common cause of death in the nation.
