Hi jazzy... One thing I tell say for sure is, there will always be improvements. Insulins and oral meds keep getting better, delivery and testing devices are like computers now: they've already got the next generation in the wings by the time they've released a new product.
Research is going on all over the world and that information is being shared with each other - all leading to a better and better understanding of what might cause Type1 Diabetes, as well as how to best manage it.
I personally don't hold out for a "cure" for Diabetes in the near future (yes, of course I dream of being able to use those two words in the same sentence one day) but for now, I am continually grateful for all the improvements being made in understanding this complex disease and for the progressively better and better tools I can use to better manage it. (And the word for the day is...better
