cost of maintaining diabetes in dubai

hi i am a type1 diabetic depending on insulin. Recently i have got a job in dubai with a salary of 3500 aed/month. My company won't cover my insulin expenses under their medical insurance.so could anyone notify me with the current cost of insulin cartridges(i mainly use novomix 30 penfill) available in dubai? As i have come to know that medical expenses are too high in dubai, but don't have any idea about insulin expenses. Please someone help me out on this as this will help me deciding on whether i am joining that company or not.Thanks.

The OP is asking a specific question and both replies fail to address it. It would be more helpful to answer his question than to be rude about his job. Many people in Dubai earn less than 3500 dirhams a month so please don't tell the OP to get another job when he wasn't asking anything about his salary or pay conditions.

Suggest you post on an expat forum - try www.expatforum.com. You may find another person with diabetes who knows the costs. I don't honestly think your salary will be sufficient to cover your medication and living costs and leave you enough to save/send home.
