Hi, I am diabetic, type 2, but underweight and quite young. I am on nearly the max allowed tablets and have a mum and two brothers on insulin.

We are hoping to move to Spain in the near future and I have priced metformin/gliclazide into my budget but I wonder if anyone who pays for insulin could give me a rough monthly cost. I am well under retirement age but will hopefully not have to work so won't qualify for the free meds.

Thanks

Grebo, could you PM me his details please? Always useful to have a local doctor's number on hand.

Thanks

Gran Via circles the city of Alicante - if you are near a tram station you can (by way of a change of tram) get to Campello quite easily.

If you are near the Avenida Denia end (near the Burger King/PlazaMar shopping centre) you can get the number 21 bus which goes to Campello)

If you will be driving, Campello is no more than about ten minutes from Gran Via.

I think that someone who has mentioned a chap in Campello must be talking about Dr. Bueno - he has a clinic on C/- San Bartolome (the main street down near the beach end of town) Their number is 965632929 (the receptionist is from Northern Ireland and therefore speaks English. She should be able to answer your questions regarding your private health insurance too. The email address for Policlinica (their surgery) is [email protected]
