Jan/Elvis,

I intentionally left out Type 2 because the same medical professionals
surveyed by the ADA who believe Type 1 will be cured do not believe the same
of Type 2, as the latter is significantly related to lifestyle issues such
as eating habits, exercise, etc. I realize that may not apply to you, but as
principle it make sense--even if Type 1 is cured, Type 2's will keep popping
up because it manifests itself after years of (negative) conditioning. But
it's just a prediction...

On the other hand, maybe they'll develop a magic pill for all of us....
