The cost of healthcare in America is astronomical, and insulin prices are a heavy burden on millions of Americans each month. In March, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Affordable Insulin Now Act to cap insulin prices for insured individuals to $35 a month.

It also signals the liver to store blood sugar for later use, which helps regulate normal organ function. Without insulin, patients with diabetes can develop problems like heart disease, vision loss, and kidney disease.
