Type 1 Diabetes Cure Possible?

I’m not sure how much this has been discussed in the type 1 diabetes community but i just bumped into an article that states the Boston Children’s Hospital has found the root cause of type 1 diabetes. I’ve read lots of articles that discuss leads on cures, but nothing this straight forward. In the article it says:

“The Boston Children’s Hospital could be on the verge of curing type 1 diabetes.”

That’s amazing! I’m glad that so much progress is being made on this front and definitely believe that one day we will be able to immunize children from ever having to deal with type 1 diabetes and free others from the burden it brings.

I’ll post an update on my condition soon, but in short I’m doing pretty awesome in comparison to this time one year ago.

Free Meter Is Awesome

I ordered this free meter as a spare to put in my desk at work but was immediately blown away at how little blood it needed to produce a result.

This is the Abbott FreeStyle Lite This thing needs a fraction of the blood my One Touch Ultra needs! Simply put, I’m amazed but have such a surplus of One Touch lancets and test strips it would be tough to switch. If they had a better lancing device I might actually be forced to switch but for now it’ll have to be a backup though!

This has me wanting to try other meters and lacing devices, any suggestions?
