Someday....maybe.....but they will have to get around the side effects, for sure.

A new study has found that many diabetes patients who were injected with stem cells from their own peripheral blood lived for three years or more without needing insulin. | Study says stem cell treatment reduces insulin use

Thanx Terrie,I was wondering how fast they are going...My wife and me are making all ours hope that they succeed with stem cell treatment...!
I can't see why there wouldn't be more testing done in stem cell research.. I know it can be a touchy subject but if it will save some lives and allow people to live a "normal" life why shouldn't we do it. I think that there is a "reason" behind scientists finding out that stem cells will "cure" certain things.. IE: as in a higher power stepped in! I am all for it.. and always have been-- and when they put out there that there will be a stem cell research project in my area I will be the first one in line!!!
