I wish I would have known that Jake was susceptible to IDDM; his diagnosis was a surprise. No child in my family has ever had IDDM; My other sons are in the Trial Net Study; My father's brother was diagnosed w/ "Shock Diabetes" in his late 30's (maybe late 1950 to 60) after causing a vehicular-pedestrian homicide & receiving multiple phone calls, etc..about his fault on top of his innate guilt. How is immunobiology involved w/ the lineage AKA why Jake exactly ?!?

Please ask about degludec: (a) when do you think it might clear the FDA obstacle course, and (b) what if anything is known about its efficacy and/or side effects?
