Re: Subject: Re: [IP] DM testing in Florida



Yes there is Ellen, we are on a daily oral medication to see if that will
help prevent diabetes.  Without these kind of trials, you could never come
up with any kind of prevention for anything.  I am all for it!

If I found out later that this trial did work and I could have prevented
diabetes in my youngest daughter , it would be a hard one to get over.
