Miracle Cure - Day 20 WEGO Health Blog

I'm participating in the WEGO Health Blog's 'Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge' where bloggers are asked to write about their conditions. The goal is to write from these 30 health related prompts for 30 days in April.

Today ia day twenty.
Miracle Cure. Write a news-style article on a miracle cure. What's the cure? How do you get the cure? Be sure to include disclaimer.

Miracle Cure

My closest-to-a-miracle cure that I can think of, would be the closed loop system that is being tested right now among people with Type 1 diabetes.

And it is waaaay beyond my paygrade to explain it all here. Let Amy Tenderich and her wonderful chock-full-of-the-latest-diabetes-information blog DiabetesMine, explain it via a man who has tested the closed loop system, Tom Brobson.

You can read about his trial and his experience here.

And that, my friends, is a miracle.
Right here and right now, in 2012.

I'm so excited about the AP. Beyond excited.

I think a true biological cure, one that doesn't require nasty anti-rejection drugs or have some other types of undesirable side effects, is in the future, but not the near future.

But the AP is so close I can almost taste it! I really do believe it is going to give our kids a new freedom.
