    I’m skeptical and excited all at once!

    I am also very excited! Sometimes I hate learning about new cool stuff though because I know I won’t be getting it for a long time. :(

    Thank you Allison for great info, and great reporting. I gave up hoping for a cure a long time ago. Doesn’t mean I don’t want one, but I don’t know if I’ll see it in my lifetime. For me, anything and everything that makes living with diabetes easier is a great step forward, and many of these sound very real and not too far away.

    Well I agree with Sysy, I always love to know about the New Stuff, although I am in to some Health issues as well because technology takes all the health away if uses more then necessary.

    The first thing you mentioned about the delay with mechanical devices as compared to what our body can accomplish is the problem with the artificial pancreas project. I would rather see the JDRF funding less complicated and more promising ideas like the ones that you have mentioned. Thanks for the recap.

    The Smart Insulin is so exciting. I was able to attend a lecture and the implications are amazing. I hope that by the time my 7 year old enters college, Smart Insulin will be approved and available. Here’s to a successful trial and speedy approval!

    This is promising. I look for the day when insulin can be manufactured and delivered on board by some biological self sustaining tissue using biological sensors.

    I have a 13 yr old T1D. I think that there should be a insulin that can cover both the high’s and low’s. It should be pushed through and given to the ones suffering with this disease. I also think that the GCP shot for bladder cancer, and TB should be given to the ones stricken with this disease. It is crazy and there is no excuse that it isn’t already available.
