According to Diabetesmag.net the first patient who participated in a diabetes trial
is now diabetes free!
“In a new clinical trial to observe a new method of injecting islet cells into a patient with type 1 diabetes, doctors from the University of Miami’s Diabetes Research Institute have confirmed that their first trial patient no longer needs insulin therapy.
The first patient has been giving herself insulin injections and following a strict daily schedule to take care of her diabetes since she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 17. Now 43, she has undergone the surgery in this new trial and no longer needs injections because her body is producing insulin naturally. Since the minimally – invasive procedure in August 2015, she also no longer has dietary restrictions that coincide with having Type 1 Diabetes.”
