What is Diabetes? Latest stem cell research for Diabetes
Some people with Type 1 diabetes who received an experimental stem-cell treatment have been able to go for up to four years without needing insulin, researchers claimed yesterday. However, Diabetes UK says much more research is needed.
Type 1 Diabetes usually surfaces in childhood and is usually associated with the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin. People with Type 1 Diabetes are also called Insulin-Dependent because they have to take insulin for life.

Type 11 Diabetes is also called Adult Onset Diabetes and usually occurs after the age of 40. People with Type 11 Diabetes do produce insulin in the pancreas, but their body cells have become resistant to it.
Although people with controlled diabetes can lead a normal healthy life, uncontrolled diabetes means chronically elevated blood sugar levels which slowly destroy proteins in the body, causing considerable damage to tissues and organs.
Complications from untreated or poorly controlled diabetes include kidney damage, heart disease, nerve damage, and even blindness.
Can I use InsulatePlus for Diabetes along with my prescription and over the counter medication?
Yes, you can - but NOT without first consulting your doctor. Insulate Plus is very effective in controlling blood sugar levels and improving the body’s ability to use insulin.
This means that blood sugar levels must be monitored in people who are also taking prescription diabetic medicine as it is highly likely that their prescription medication will have to be reduced or even stopped altogether.
If your doctor is not familiar with natural remedies or is unsympathetic towards your quest for a healthier alternative, seek a second opinion.
Not a cure for Type 1 diabetes
Dr Iain Frame, Diabetes UK’s Director of Research, warned: “Preliminary findings from this small study were reported in 2007. Although this remains an interesting area of research, the importance of a limited extension to this study should not be overstated - this is not a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
“As we said in 2007, we would like to see this experiment carried out with a control group for comparison of results and a longer-term follow-up in a greater number of people.
