Re: [IP] DM testing in Florida



Ellen

Having a daughter WITH diabetes and another daughter in the DPT trial that
tested positive for the ICA and IAA antibodies with no genetic protection ,
I
am for one GLAD that they are trying to prevent diabetes from happening!!!!
I think that prevention will actually happen before curing myself!  Why not
stop thousands of more children from this devastating disease..  I don't
want TWO daughters
with diabetes!!!!  So I do NOT think it is a waste of money!  We prevent
polio, chicken pox, measles , etc from happening ...why NOT
diabetes?!!!!!!!!
