Not sure where that 2-3 came from? Well, in a response, it was said that some physician told him so.

Fortunately, I don't have much faith in physician's, as a group.

One of my good ones proved his worth, or certainly enhanced it, when I asked a question related to his specialty and he replied "we don't know". In it's various forms, that phrase is apparently beaten out of medical students early in their schooling. It's the reason that real sciences progress much more rapidly and typically have better predictive capability.

I rate "medical science's" predictive capability at roughly the same level as meteorology.

The more I learned about diabetes, the more I realized how really sucky it is. Usually, not at first - but as you noted, it has many insidious effects. On top of that, there's the organ damage that goes on. Insulin helps control (at least slow) the progress and damage - but a cure for that is really needed. Maybe, after they sort out COVID, they can continue the extreme marshaling of resources and make some real and accelerated progress.
