    Possible but don't get your hopes built up :)

    I've lost count how many articles I've read over the years about a possible cure is on the horizon, that said I am really confident that cure of sorts may be found in the next 10 years.

    Another promising development. I'm convinced that there will be something along within the next decade too. I know that it's a running joke that many people are told this at diagnosis (mine was 10 years ago), but there have been some very interesting developments recently.

    I've been diabetic nearly 40 years and when first diagnosed was told by the consultant that there would be a cure for diabetes in the next decade . I'm still waiting ! Maybe in the next century ? Who knows. All I do know we won't benefit from any cures !
