Yeah, We have sorted the immune T-cells to keep the icelet cells that houses the insulin from being attacked and import the beta cells that makes the insulin so It's just to get the icelet to get the inplant is just the only stumbing block.
I have had a read of your public profile and you are allmost the same as me.
I had my diagnosis in '77 so 37 years a diabetic.
Anthill was about how technolagy get smaller the ant would be able to use it but please you can call me Peter.Hello Peter:
I noticed your nick is Anthill. How did you come across a name like that for yourself?? Do you prefer to be called Anthill or Peter or either?
Ahh, They have found that with just four drugs to curb the T-cells so there is not much to go on.Yes, you are right about the cells. It's just the immune system that is the big problem now.
With the human triles that I think it's underway It's not far off I dare say.I think I read somewhere that they still say another 5-10 years before it's all figured out. That would be hard to believe after all this time of having Diabetes.
I was 11 or was I 10 in '71 and you would not reconize me as I was thin, Too thin as you know that ballet dancers are slim as I was thinner.Ya, you're almost as many years with Diabetes, as I am. How old were you when were you diagnosed?
Yes, I have some compications though like just lately a stroke and eye problems. Not good at all.Well, we are still doing pretty Good considering, eh? When I was 7, I heard my Optometrist tell my Mom that I would be blind by age 19. And of course, other older citizens said I'd have to have my legs amputated and I would be dead by age 35. None of that stuff has happened to me yet(touch wood). It sure wasn't much Fun with those thoughts in the far back of my mind while growing up though. I guess you heard the same remarks from People also.
Hey thanks terrie.***Congrats on Your 37th Year With Diabetes*** Terrific!!
Thankyou.Hey, Cool sig that you have there Peter. I haven't put any thought into mine yet. Be Good.

Geez, sorry to hear of your complications Peter, especially the stroke. I just had the retinopathy but my Ophthalmologist lasered it so that's Fine.Anthill said:Yes, I have some compications though like just lately a stroke and eye problems. Not good at all.
You're Very Welcome. That's alot of years you've made it through. I hope that you have many more Good ones until that cure comes around.Anthill said:Thankyou.
Do you like ballet?
Gladys C. Lester Dull was diagnosed with Type 1 in 1924 , just three years after the discovery of insulin. She is believed to be the longest living person with diabetes.
WOW!!! Now that is just amazing!!In November 1924, three years after the discovery of insulin in 1921, six-year-old Gladys Dull began her long life of insulin injections. To our knowledge, she is the longest-living person with diabetes to date.
And what would make it all the more beautiful is a successful beta cell transplant and just hope that just someone would come up with keeping the islet cell surviving since that we have the rouge T-cell from the immune system by just 4 cheap drugs that readily available. (Gee, I wish I knew what those drugs were as the pharmacy don't know it's apart from the cure of diabetes!!) They would be quite cheap!!WOW! That's one Beautiful butterfly!
