About a year ago, my blood sugar had risen to the low end of the pre-diabetic range. As a precaution my doctor prescribed a low dosage of Metformin.
A few months later, my health insurance company began sending me deals on test strips. Obviously they knew about the Rx and assumed I had Type 2 diabetes.
A few months after that, my work’s wellness program sends me information on some new diabetes monitoring program. I don’t have diabetes, damn it. OK, I guess technically we’re self-insured and just use Anthem as an administrator, so work got the info that way.
About a month ago I needed to use Chrome (normally I use Tor and Duck Duck Go) and sure enough, ads from CVS for test trips and a finger pricker. Not sure who sold them that information or where they scraped it.
