* diet: sensible, easy--to-follow suggestions about what, when, and how much to eat (and the choices are delicious!)
* new drugs: inhaled insulin powder, combination pills, insulin that lasts twenty-four hours, fast-acting "designer" insulin, and other milestones
* cutting-edge equipment: state-of-the-art insulin pumps, glucose monitors, and pen injectors
* complications: innovations for preventing heart disease, kidney failure, neuropathy of the feet and legs, and loss of vision
* stem cell research: the imminent possibility of using stem cells as a source of insulin-producing beta cells
