Diabetes Study Update


11/02/2016

This is a condition that is very prevalent amongst the African and Caribbean community but now there is new research into Type 1 Diabetes. It is understood that diabetic sufferers developed type 1 after the number of insulin producing cells dropped by around 90 per cent.

A new study carried out by a team in the University of Exeter shows that for young people, after the age of six , the insulin producing cells are still present and have stopped functioning. These researchers believe it may be possible to awaken the dormant cells and reverse the disease.

The conclusion is that Diabetics gave more insulin producing cells which can lead to a reduction on medication for diabetes and if possible a cure.
