Default How many years would you guess before type 1 is cured?

I doubt Type 1 will be cured in the next 30 years, but I do think that the treatment will improve. Transplantation helps, but isn't a cure as you are always risking rejection. I've read about the artificial pancreas, but don't really know enough details about it, but maybe that will free many Type 1's from their current constrictions and complications.

Your autoimmune system has a memory of what it thinks are "bad cells" in your body. If we could find a way to control that memory so that it no longer thought that the beta cells were bad guys...that would be the cure. We could, at the same time, alter the autoimmune system to recognize cancer cells as the bad guys...and cure cancer as well.

The media and others have been teasing people with hope of a "cure" for decades. While it hasn't materialized, at least more and more kids are being diagnosed well before they hit DKA because more parents and doctors are aware of the symptoms.

Can't say the same for adults, even if they are diagnosed, it's usually with T2 and they end up in the hospital anyway when the medications don't work and the doctors aren't aware that T1 isn't just a kids disease...

I hope soon! I have type 1 (thought i put type 1 when i signed up but says 2) and my grandfather has type 1 also. I'm 33 and my dads father died of cancer and now my father has had cancer in 3 different places. I'll probably get cancer to go along with it too so hopefully something gets cured!

In the black header bar above...mouseover the Quick Links; click on Edit Your Details; change your type in Diabetes Types and then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Save Changes.
