Discovery of Genetic Switch Finds a Possible Cure for Type 1 Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Scientists have identified a master regulator gene for early embryonic development of the pancreas and other organs, putting researchers closer to coaxing stem cells into pancreatic cells as a possible cure for Type 1 diabetes.

A Step Closer to Regenerating Beta Cells
Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009
US scientists have come a step closer to finding a way to help treat people with diabetes by reactivating their own insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. They discovered a hitherto unknown role for a well known protein: it helps immature endocrine systems generate new pancreatic islet cells, which include the insulin-producing beta cells.

Using Vitamin C Plus Insulin to Stop Diabetes Damage
Posted: Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Researchers have found a way to stop the damage caused by Type 1 diabetes with the combination of insulin and a common vitamin found in most medicine cabinets. This simply means that getting your glucose under control is not enough.

Inhaled Insulin AFRESA(R) Controls Post-Meal Sugar Levels with Less Weight Gain and Hypoglycemia
Posted: Wednesday, June 17, 2009
The findings of two 52-week studies show that the investigational ultra rapid acting insulin AFRESA® (insulin human [rDNA origin]) Inhalation Powder combined with basal insulin is comparable to standard of care therapies in controlling post-meal blood sugar levels, and also results in significantly less weight gain and risk of hypoglycemia for adult patients with diabetes.

Vitamin C Helps Protect Against Type 1 Diabetes Damage
Posted: Friday, June 12, 2009
Poor blood glucose control can lead to blood vessel and nerve cell damage in diabetics, and the only known way to prevent this is to maintain healthy blood glucose levels, and even this doesn’t always work. A recent research team, however, has found that combining insulin with vitamin C stops blood vessel damage in type 1 diabetics.
