Is a permanent cure for type 1 diabetes on the horizon?
Over the years many alternative type 1 diabetes treatment plans have been created, some more conventional and easier to adjust to. For years scientists have been struggling to create a cure for type 1 diabetes. Well now it seems that cure is almost here. Recently a group of scientists have been able to recreate adult insulin producing beta cells through stem cell research. The beta cells may then be transplanted to patients with type 1 diabetes to help their pancreas start producing insulin again. while there still is the threat of the body’s immune system attacking the beta cells but they think they may have a way to fix this problem by encasing the cells in a sheath to protect them. This is truly a groundbreaking discovery in medical science and would help millions of people all over the world.
