Medical Tools & Spplies
It might seem a bit overwhelming looking through the list of medical devices and supplies needed to manage Periodic Paralysis. A well stocked medical took kit will cost somewhere between five hundred and one thousand dollars. Some of the equipment is obtainable through a medical provider depending on his/her willingness to help. Most insurance companies will argue against the necessity of patients having such equipment and be unwilling to pay for testing equipment and supplies. They will most likely deny any claims without proper documentation demonstrating specific needs. We had to purchase all of these devices with our own funds but have never regretted having them. These devices relieve a lot of uncertainty and help both patient and care-giver cope with very difficult circumstances and help with making informed choices. The more we knew about metabolic processes the better our decisions could be on how to identify causes and treat symptoms. These devices will help you take better control over your own health.
These items can be purchased at most Medical Supply Outlets.
