A Cure For Diabetes

[Media Source*]

It looks like some Islet cells, or rather insulin producing cells found in the pancreas can be transplanted successfully which helped one 61-year old patient from Kings Hospital cured of Type One Diabetes.

"This breakthrough in islet transplantation is remarkable," adds Mr. Nigel Heaton, Consultant Liver Surgeon. "King's is the first center in the UK to achieve insulin independence in Type 1 patients. The research approach at King's is totally multidisciplinary, with experts across specialities in diabetes, liver transplantation, cell isolation and radiology all working together," he points out.

This is a great success which can potentially revolutionize the diabetic community (as I have some relatives who are diabetic and who hate the needles as well as the "watch what you eat" diet). Although there is a shortage of organ donors for them to receive the Islet cells, that may change in the future as medical science advances.

If you meet these requirements below you just might be eligible for this experimental procedure.
