Could this insulin pill replace injections for people with type 1 diabetes?

    Can’t say that this is making me think OMG THIS IS SOOOO GOOD BRIING IT ON .
    To be honest taking injections is probably the low on the my list of bad things about diabetets.
    I remember the day I was diagnosed my diabetic specialist consultant said to me “ I don’t feel sorry for you because you have to take injections for the rest of your life” but I do feel sorry for the discipline you have to follow.
    I was a bit of a needle freak too hated em but after a day or so it was like got to be done .
    If this was to come to fruition I hope we get a choice , if we do I’ll just “ keep on jabbing”
    Think I would prefer the money be spent on blood sugar meters for all ( yes that old chocolate again lol)
