Hi Friends,
Can't diabetes be treated fully if the abnormal pancreas is transplanted or the damaged beta cells responsible for the production of insulin are regenerated OR the damaged pancreas is replaced by an artificial type of thing or any other normal working pancreas can be used in place of that, similar to that in the case of kidney replacement.
Friends, please think and reply.

written from a Type 2 perspective

the general reply to this on the forum is that most advanced diabetics are not willing to risk the side effects, that is to negate/suppress their entire immune system to appear to have near normal blood glucose levels.

also in new diabetics they may produce excessive insulin or not, but their body does not have the capacity to regulate insulin and thus they will not have normal glucose regulation even with more beta cells.

for instance it has been shown more than once that with some diabetics that using large doses of NSAID (aspirin) or (Naproxen) will reduce your postprandial spike to normal giving the appearance of no diabetes present. are you personally willing to risk what health you have on an unproven experiment? Personally, the Naproxen i took tore up my stomach worse than metformin and was more detrimental to me than the painful arthritis that i was taking it for.

most say no, insulin works fine except you get fat or a hypo (deadly) if you overdose or do not eat your minimum required calories and this is all known, not a "fly by night" effect/hypothesis.

There is no known cure in type 1 or 2 as there is a lot of scams out on the net and elsewhere. If there's a cure then it will be front page news.
