I would urge you to actually read the literature on this matter. This advertisement is a serious distortion rely8ing on a single paper which probably should never have gotten past the editors. The paper by Philip Cryer as I believe an editorial in Diabetes Care, it was probably not reviewed and is full of errors. For instance, Cryer claims that 6% of patients in the DCCT/EDIC study (15) died of hypos, but only 3 of the 1400 patients died (0.2%) hardly 6%. He cites a Norway study (16) and claims 10% of patients died, but my reading of the paper suggests 10 out of more than 2000 died of hypos, a paltry 0.5%.
I am not saying that hypos are not serious or that the loss of a child is not tragic. I just ask for truth and honesty. And this is not truth, this is distortion. Shame on Diabetes Care, shame on Cryer and shame on the JDRF for resorting to a stunt.
