    Great information here. We keep hoping and waiting for more hopeful news on the genes.

    This should be part of Obamacare. Everyone who has diabetes should have their genome checked.

    Canadian researchers using a patient’s own stem cells have had good results. Here is my question-why can’t we replicate the insulin producing cells and re-insert into the liver, for example?

    Ever wonder who would fund this since diabetes is a 10+billion USD a year disease?

    It seems the research is always for a better insulin, better management, etc… Anyone want to write the Gates Foundation for funding?

    I think this is great. All of the science is (very much) over my head, but anything that is being done to try and figure out more about this complex condition is great!

    This is really wonderful. Thanks to Team Type 1 for their spit and their sponsers for arranging this. Yes it is incredilble that this has not been done for Type 1 or many other diseases.
    Hope this brings new treatments and pedal hard!
