HOW WILL YOUR DIABETES GO DOWN?
You really have more choice than you may realize for your Type 2 diabetes. All the habits you have with regard to exercise, diet and supplements as well as personal hygiene will greatly influence your health and impact your diabetes.
If you read all the articles on this blog, you’ll have nothing but hope and a plan of what you’re going to do to cause your body to give up the diabetes. But if you decide to do nothing with that information, you’ll be marching down the path towards diabetic complications – every one of them!
One of the latest technological developments on the path of diabetic complications is a pancreas ‘transplant’ or pancreas regeneration. It’s the islet cells of the pancreas that cause the production of insulin.
Scientists at several major U.S. hospitals and colleges have collaborated and concluded the ideal transplant/regeneration efforts should be with the pancreas islet cells, not the liver. There are natural times in life when the islet cells grow in mass – during pregnancy and in obesity.
So what the scientists did was simulated a regeneration of the Beta cells of the pancreas (islet cells) in a baboon. They first destroyed the baboon’s pancreas with ultrasound. Next the animals received a gene cocktail. They chose this because in rats that drink the cocktail, the rats’ pancreas cells grow back quite well and then the insulin levels return to normal. In fact, so do the C-peptide levels as well as the blood sugar levels.
You might be wondering what’s in the cocktail? It’s a scientific cocktail made of CDK, GLP1, and cyclinD2.
The scientists were successful and the baboon grew back the pancreas and the beta cells were restored.
What wonderful news this is!
But still, you have to consider what are the lifestyle habits you are engaging in right now that are causing you to have Type 2 diabetes in the first place?
Some of the institutions where this type of work is being done include:
- Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute, Dallas
- University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
- Tesas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio
- The 2nd Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University College of Medicine in Zhejiang Province
