People that have to buy certain foods?

like diabetics how do you afford buying the items you are supposed to eat or have with the rising prices? I am talking about us people that are considered "the working poor" or lower?

Hasn't impacted them. If anything they buy less (they used to buy some of those "diabetic foods" but just quit eating that stuff altogether - and they save a lot mof money by not eating it, or making their own sugar-free goodies.

  • I'm not seeing how anon's answer didn't answer the question. Eating normal whole foods is how they afford it.

The only thing I don't skimp on is lactose free milk.
