I wonder if it might appear to work if they really beat lipos? Like releasing stored insulin. I had a fear of needles at diagnosis and it took me a good year with my mother and DNS to work upto injecting myself. I had forgotten but it seems I had to lie down to be injected too at the start (was my step mother who did them for me when staying with my dad that reminded me) Things got a lot better when my mum forced my GP to prescribe pens and screw on needles (they were huge needles but better than the syringes) by just saying she wasn't leaving until I got them.
Really I'm just saying that with the right support that you can get over it. Guess we have to hope they can get this stopped, one death is too many.
