In the last few months, many new treatments have begun to show promising results, and researches don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

Managing diabetes is becoming easier, as “needle-free” monitoring becomes more and more mainstream with various methods ranging from smartphone apps, patches, implanted devices, and evolving all the way to Google and Novartis’ short-lived partnership3 on glucose-sensing contact lenses that sense glucose level in tears. With all these advancements is a cure truly around the corner? We can only hope!
The good news is that diabetics no longer have to accept hard to swallow the fact that they may die 10 to 15 years earlier than their non-diabetic friends.
However, most doctors are not diabetes specialists, and it is likely your general doctor is not informed of these new treatments for diabetes.
If you or somebody you know has diabetes, do not just let your doctor determine your future. Chances are, your doctor may not be aware of all the advancements made in treating diabetes in the last few months.
This is why it’s crucial that you conduct your own homework to find the best solution for your individual diagnosis. This is especially true if you have been seeing the same doctor for years or if you have only been diagnosed by one doctor.
Since every case is unique, so should your prognosis.
