I was watching my local news tonight when I saw a report about a possible vaccine for type 1 diabetes! I was so excited about this. Has anyone else heard about it? What do you think?

They are a long way off for a 'proper' vaccine so don't get too excited yet. I believe they are in late stage trials for one vaccine but it only slows things down rather than stopping it completely, the pancreas will still end up being useless at producing insulin but it will take a lot longer. A step in the right direction and potentially very good news but still a long way from being what we all want.

Ahhh shoot! Now I'm disappointed…Just kidding, thanks for the information I thought maybe it was something in the very early trial stage. But a small step forward is progress.
