Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

I was very upset to see that this is really just a ploy by Walgreens to get elderly clients with diabetes in to their stores.  The fine print shows this is dependent upon supplemental care policy.  Why didn't Walgreens make that JUST AS LARGE? Misleading.

Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

"...Further inspection of the ATG treatment group revealed two distinct rates of change during the 12-month period. Most of the decline in beta cell function occurred during the first 6 months.

Almost all patients in the treatment group experienced serum sickness and cytokine release syndrome following ATG infusions, and the investigators suggest that this early cytokine induction may have led to the unfavorable loss of beta cell function, particularly in the younger patients...."
