Jeff Hi my son has just been diagnosed with Diabetes 1. I have been researching this procedure called Islet Transplant. I wanted to know if a living person can have these cells transplanted to some one with Diabetes, or can it only be transplanted from a deceased person.
Vicki Hi I'm a teachers aide in primary school assisting with diabetes management. I wanted to know in a school setting with time constraints is it okay to treat a hypo then inject insulin followed by lunch then retest in 10-15 mins or should there be a BGL test after 15 mins then insulin injected then lunch. I've seen both options and while the first option is better for the time frames. I wonder if the second is much better for diabetes management. Thanks. Vicki.
