Adjitater,For me it is just not worth shutting down my entire imune system just so I don't have to do what have become really simple things.
I definately agree with you about not wanting to shutting down the immune system. I have not looked into it 100%, but I think that the anti rejection medication is less powerful than if you had a transplanted pancrease. That is just my understanding, could be different. I want to call them up and ask them what the usual side effects are, but there really is no point for me. I am not eligible for the Clinical trial so I haven't looked at the side effects. I agree that it is simple to inject insulin and check my sugar, but to have a good balance A1c, i have not figured that one out yet. Not sure i will ever be able to have the low 6 high 5 numbers that a lot of people have on here. The are having a convention in Maryland about it, I can not make it, or I would go.
