When I saw this article come into my email box I was very interested. It seems that this vaccine allows the C-peptide to increase in a type 1 diabetics body and that shows that they may be close to finding a way to have a type 1 diabetic possibly regrow the beta cells that are generally attacked by the body. They are not calling it a cure, but the idea that a type 1 diabetic may need less insulin to maybe even no additional insulin is a great step. This is very exciting.
I wish the study had more people in it, but it is a great start.

Read the article by WebMD and tell us what you think about it.
