Has anyone else read this? I think it sounds promising. I have a good knowledge of diabetes in dogs…it is normally managed in a comparable way to diabetes in humans. It manifests in much the same way. Any thoughts?

Yep Rahrbunny, I had read about that 2 weeks before when someone sent me an article in Spanish (Castillian) on this news. It is promising but the jump between dogs and humans may be pretty large. I have heard of promising developments with animal studies before, but for some reason it seems not to happen. I am not holding my breath, but would be overjoyed if it eventually worked for my T 1 friends!

Until then keep on top of your BG levels and perhaps a practical cure will come to pass eventually.
