    Very interesting, but probably won’t help those who already have nerve and eye damage :/

    This is really interesting. I will ask my uncle if he wants to volunteer. He’s also a PWD and always feel numbness in both his upper and lower extremities. Maybe, this will help him.

    I have longed believe that T1s partially develops complications due to a lack of other hormones produced bt beta cells and pancreas. I would take a 1x week shot if it would help prevent complications.

    This sounds promising, but who goes in every week for “a routine doctor’s visit at the same time they’re measuring blood pressure, cholesterol, and other in-office blood checks”?? I would hate having to go in every week. I don’t think this will be a workable treatment until the injections can be done at home.

    Bring it on C-peptide! As a T1dm for over 30 years, I would love to prevent the neuropathy, nephropathy and retinopathy that will surely come. I would love to be involved. Use me!

    Would the weekly shot have to be done at a Doctors office and if so, why? My wife has been Type 1 for 42 years; I think that qualifies her as an expert on dosages and administering shots!

    Once again thanks so much for the info / link. I have just heard back from-a well respected / well known neurologist working with the Toronto Cebix site. Actually she is the first neurologist I ever visited – about 20 years ago.Thank goodness not much has changed – at least peripherally!

    I would love the weekly shots. I am retired military so my health plan is TRICARE FOR LIFE. It is medicare (80%)
    plus tricare (20%). Full Pay, doctors love me as a cash cow.
