Funnily enough, Avandia is a drug I’ve never been prescribed for my T2ishness, so whether or not it would have delayed my progression to insulin dependency is a moot point. Given the fact that I already have the odds stacked against me, the increased risk of cardiovascular problems may have been irrelevant.

@ckoei – I don’t think it would have done me any good, given my genetic background I’m far more likely to die from emphysema than lung cancer, though the probability is that a massive heart attack will remove all uncertainty! (You may have noticed I have no illusions about my smoking habit!)
