I was thinking recently about what was the one thing that should be achievable in diabetic treatment that would most make a difference in my life. Setting aside the obvious – the cure or the perfect closed loop system, or chocolate cheese cake that tastes great, has no calories or carbs – what would make the most difference in how you take care of yourself, and why?
For me, it would be faster acting insulins that more closely match the effectiveness of insulin in non-diabetics. It takes so long to bring a high back down that a single high can throw the average off in a big way. Novolog and Humalog are good, and Apidra may be better, but I would like to see something even faster.
Any other ideas?
