  1. It’d be nice if they stopped researching palliative measures and started working on actually curing diabetes.

    But of course there’s no money in that.

    1. It’s not that there’s *no* money. It’s that there’s not enough to balance the $1.3 Billion needed to pay the testing labs and the FDA for all 3 phases of human testing, for the 3 cures cannot be patented, because a patent has run out, or they are already produced by non-diabetics in their own bodies. Get the FDA to drop the cost, and the 3 probable cures for Type 1 Diabetes can come to market. The 95% of diabetics with Type2 diabetes have the longer wait, because that is a more systemic disease than Type 1.

  2. Something like this is already on the market and it works great. https://www.freestyle.abbott/us-en/home.html

    Too bad my insurance won’t cover it and I have to pay for it out of pocket. But I’ve been managing by Type II better than I had been and I’ve been showing signs of improving my A1C.

    (I spend about $250/quarter)
