The ADA Scientific Sessions 2010: What they mean for you and me

The American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions take place in a different city in the US every year. This year, some 17 thousand people gathered in Orlando, in spite of the record central Florida summer heat and humidity.

At the ADA sessions, lots of announcements are made in the way of “improved outcomes” (personally, I have never been able to relate much to the term “outcome”, but that’s a different topic), results from clinical trials and more. But what does the largest diabetes conference in the world mean for you and me, “little patients” who live with diabetes every day of our lives? The ADA Sessions give us a bit of a peek into what may lie ahead in terms of therapy.
