I sure hope this is something that works for them. They have enough problems with comorbidities, and anything to ease their burden would be so nice! :-)

[size= small; font-family: verdana, geneva]This is the headline I came across while reading a Canadian magazine ([url=http://www.flare.com/]Flare[/url] of all places - it's like a fashion magazine for young fashionista's with $$$'s). A clinical study has been taking place at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto where doctors are testing out early-stage patients with a 2-3 week course of insulin injections that they hope can help to restore the ability to get your pancreas up and running efficiently again. Their hope is to put diabetes into remission. New trials have started where insulin will be given once every 3 months for 2 years - to see if the disease can be kept in check .... FOREVER. Well, at least for 75% of the patients.[/size]

[size= small; font-family: verdana, geneva]If this succeeds, the hope is that one day, diabetes care might be possible with periodic treatments - sort of like getting a haircut!

[/size][size= small]Results will be available in a year or two - along with the side effects (isn't that always the case) in helping patients patients perhaps avoid a lifetime of injections.
