      The Daily Express headline for today is “Diabetes ‘cure’ to end misery of jabs”. As it’s the Daily Express I haven’t bothered to read the story but I suspect it’s bollocks.

      Needless to say, being the Daily Express, there’s also a picture of “our Maddie”.

      Anyway, fellow “sufferers” do you find “jabs” “miserable”?

      Two things…..

      1: 10 years – LOL. And lots of LOLs. Always 10 years.
      2: “Cure” – that’s not a cure, it’s a new form of treatment (artificial pancreas) that is being developed around the world. Cure for me means no need to add insulin or gadgets to my body.

      I love developments in treatments and welcome every tiny bit of progress but headlines like this do nothing to progress it or offer comfort to us “sufferers” (hate that word too).

      Good luck to the developers of this treatment though.

      Ah, good point about the definition of “cure”. I think a complete cure in a purest sense is unattainable but I would define a genuine, working artificial pancreas as a cure of sorts, no?

      Absolutely. But call it that. The parents of newly diagnosed kids will cling to headlines like this just like mine did three and a half cures ago!

      Artificial Pancreas is definitely realistically achievable even though new technology including insulin needs to come first.

      Oh, and getting NHS funding 😉

      We should really post Tim’s excellent how to write a diabetic news story post on the Express website to save them the effort next time they decide to cure us.

      And it does make a change to be cured by the Express rather than the Mail. A change is as good as a rest and all that

      I know you want to make a point @Alison – but three times? 😉

      The key bit from the article (to save you reading it) is the inevitable “Human trials are set to start in 2016 with the first implants taking place on the NHS within 10 years”.

      @seasiderdave – thanks for linking to the Daily Mail. I should have had Kitten Block for Chrome installed. It redirects any links to Mail or Express to pictures of kittens instead!
