But a year after her nine-year-old daughter Molly was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, she and her family are hoping to move to Nova Scotia in search of affordable insulin and better insurance coverage. Reseburg said her daughter takes six to 10 needles a day of both long-acting and short-acting insulin. She’s also on a continuous glucose monitoring system, which monitors blood sugar 24 hours a day and must be changed every 10 days.
