We have come a long way, that is for sure. Just ask some of our members who have had diabetes for decades. They are amazed at how we have changed in our treatments. While a cure is not on the table yet, there are some great advances.

I found this article in Diabetes Health Newsletter today and I am very glad to see things like inflammation as part of the problem to be treated. Take a moment to read the article and share your thoughts.

Interesting link. I hope that university studies on diabetes, and other similar sources can get the necessary funding to continue, and even expand. I wonder how much pharmaceutical companies contribute? I never looked into it in depth, but somehow I suspect it is minimal where finding a cure is involved.

All of us understand having problems with Social Security and diabetes, health issues. I would love to send you some reasonable suggestions but seriously you have got to use punctuation! I can't make heads or tails of what you're trying to say, I don't care about spelling, I can figure that out.
