Wow, glad they are trying to better address the problem.  When I was first diagnosed and was reading about symptoms, common complications, "cures", etc, what really got my attention was learning that a person could lose their eyesight due to diabetes.  That really concerned me and motivated me to figure out how to control my blood glucose.
