RESOURCE: Tips for Retirement Planning


I'll admit, I haven't really given serious thought to diabetes and retirement.  Here is a good article from the ADA / Diabetes Forecast with some things to think about.


Do you have any tips or advice to add?  Have you transitioned to retirement with diabetes, or have you begun planning for the changes?

I worry about insurance coverage when I retire.  I really wish we had universal health care coverage!

Mr Sandy and I are coming close to retirement and I'm petrified about having to rely on Medicare for health insurance!! With all of the scariness coming out of Washington recently, I'm very afraid of what retiring will do to my health care costs and out of pocket costs to maintain a couple chronic illnesses. I'm going to check out this article. Thanks, Karen!!! HUGS!!!
