Diabetes - Byetta for the Heart

Beyond We're Alive

Some one on the insulin pumpers list posted today emphasizing that while there isn't a cure, diabetics are living longer. the post pointed out that before 1920, Type 1 was a death sentence. I can relate and probably more intimately. My father and I were diagnosed in the same birth year. He was sent home with urine test strips amd told not to eat sugar. His pilot's license was revoked. I have choices and technology he didn't have, 25 years later. There are oral meds, injectables, and the insulin pump to choose from. And now there is CGMS. So far I have remained active and able to do what I want. At this stage, my father was housebond, on oxygen, with congestive heart failure. iA big positive difference.
