Hey SuperMum!
I can't seem to view the article - will have to figure out why tomorrow (it's a multiple used PC - so who knows what switch has been turned on/off <lol>). I know for us "long in the tooth" Type 1's that we would like to see a cure. Also, did you know that Type 1's - juvenile - goes up to age 30? I only found this out when a boyfriend of mine became diabetic later on in life.

The sad thing besides Type 1 is the amount of Type 2 diabetes that is occurring in young children - due to eating habits / exercise - just our general way of living I think. When I was diagnosed with diabetes - Type 1 - juvenile was a very small percentage of the diabetes population. I don't know - maybe kids are less active now then they used to be since I was always outside playing. Perhaps there is something in our heavily processed food (I rarely eat proceesed food) or the air with breath in. I'm no medical expert like some of you that write on this Forum - just hands on!

BTW, I noticed your posting in another section - that you were looking into whether or not to get a pump for your daughter. How is the research going? It took me about 5 years to make my final decision if it helps. PM me if you have other questions as well.

Researchers from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have identified two genes that raise the risk of type 1 diabetes. More research is needed but this seems like an exciting breakthrough in type 1 research which could improve predicting who may be diagnosed with diabetes. I always hold out hope for a cure but this research brings hope for those yet to be diagnosed. You can read about the research here: Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
