Deaths from diabetes last year surged 17% to more than 100,000, we found. This grim toll is the result of failures that long predate the pandemic. Despite billions of dollars spent on new treatments, the prognosis for people with diabetes has been getting worse as the number of people with the disease has increased, especially among working-age and even younger people

What an absudly sensationalized sentence.

Do you think its possible that these patients are dying from diabetes related illnesses for some reason other than a corporate conspiracy? Maybe because they are poorly compliant on their medication regimens leading to increased A1c?

Your own reporting points out that hyperglycemic crisis is rampant in our society, particularly in the last 10 years. Then you subsequently criticize the medical profession for targeting low A1c. How do you address that juxtaposition?
