For those of you with Type 1 diabetes, don't give up. There are clinical trials out there that are pushing for a cure - not just management of diabetes. I was functionally cured of type 1 diabetes with an islet cell tranplant through the Chicago Diabetes Project and have had normal blood sugars and A1c's for 5 years now. I struggled so many years (33) with this disease and finally reached the point where I had to find help. Below is the Chicago Diabetes Project website info if you want to check it out:
