No C-peptide in insulin?

Have just been reading the diabetes blog post about c-peptide.
Until now, I had no idea of the importance of c-peptide. I knew it was an indicator of how much insulin is in our systems, but to think it has a very good job to do, and we are NOT getting it in our insulins any more... scary.
Would this mean that all my efforts to keep my a1c low and look after myself could be useless? Without c-peptide are we destined for complications regardless?
A little worrying! Nay, a LOT worrying!
More research needed - if anyone has any info, please leave a comment.
