    This is great news.
    I have type II I have my A1C down to 6.2 and thought getting under six was the best thing for me. I have been working out more to get the blood presure under control. Thanks so much for the info!

    A great explanation of that study. I’m not diabetic but I have been researching this subject as a writer and found your article very helpful.

    I used to get the ADA’s news letter every month and it’s depressing to read about all the terrible ways that we are going to die. My A1C is in the lower 5′s and i take good care of myself. Why depress us with all this negative things.
    I like the words “So plan your future carefully, as you are probably going to live a long time!”
    Thank you Dr. Jackson you made my day!

    It is really great to hear about the accord study , and even better to get it firsthand, from someone who knows. I am glad you have this here, and hope to hear from you again soonkersey

    The Accord study gave the tight control group participants Avandia, which would explain the heart related deaths. Why isn’t anyone talking about this fact? Why would anyone be surprised at the results when a drug proven to cause heart related deaths was included in the study? Why are all the reviewers ignoring the inclusion of Avandia? Time to stop protecting the drug companies in these reviews, espeically on this site.
