by health and nutrition advice journalist

by health and nutrition advice journalist
There’s been a huge breakthrough in finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes: researchers have succeeded in turning human stem cells into mature, insulin-producing cells in the lab. In people with T1 diabetes, the beta cells that produce insulin in their pancreas have been destroyed. Without these cells regulating their glucose levels, they experience spikes in blood sugar that can lead to serious health conditions and even death if left unchecked. Insulin shots help regulate their blood sugar, but that requires constant poking and tracking, on top of the fact that insulin is only getting more expensive. Diabetes can be […]
