Half a cheer for success in the fight against complications

Last update: 15/03/2017

We must never forget that it’s not all bad news that the number of people living with diabetes in the world continues to rise. At least some of this has a good news element – people with diabetes are living longer (albeit many with established complications). There are some grounds for muted celebration in the battle against diabetes complications – just half a cheer for the moment. The burden is still too formidable and there is too much uncertainty about the present position to merit more than that.
