Cure for Diabetes Breakthrough

Cure for Diabetes in as Little as 3 Years

For years, scientists have been working on a cure for diabetes - a physically devastating and potentially deadly disease. Years ago, when insulin came onto the marketplace, those individuals who'd been ravaged by this disease were helped immensely - able to lead near-normal lives.

But insulin isn't a cure-all for diabetes.

This disabling disease runs rampant in my own family. I lost my father to the side-effects of diabetes. He went blind in this fifties - almost lost a leg due to infection. In the end, both his kidneys and heart failed when he passed in 2005.

Race forward - just a few short years and now a Harvard team of scientists have announced what they believe may be a cure for diabetes!

How Would the Cure Work?

Through human embryonic stem cells which would be capable to produce insulin.

To date, when these cells were transplanted into mice - diabetes was cured. The mice were able to produce insulin, which in turn regulated blood sugar levels.

Researcher Doug Melton said that diabetes could be cured in less than 10 days.

In former research, the quantity of cells necessary for study have been limited. But times have flipped the situation and researchers have the capability to produce hundreds of millions of cells.

How Soon Until the Cure is Offered to the Public?

Testing will be necessary on a few individuals before the cure is released to the general public.

The clinical trials could last approximately three years.

In Summary

Currently, about three million Americans suffer from Type 1 Diabetes. Daily insulin injections, insulin pumps, and constant testing of blood sugar is necessary.

With the Harvard breakthrough - these individuals may be able to live 'normal' lives.
