Re: [IP] complications

Take a look at the DCCT study, it's available online (look at the links).
Unfortunately, you'll find that while tight control lessens the risk of
complications, only a cure can eliminate them.  Somehow I'd managed to miss
that point -- and always made the silly assumption that the folks battling
the complications hadn't taken care of themselves.  Definately not
necessarily correct.
Take care,
