Changing a century old paradigm for patients with Type 1 diabetes

Changing a century old paradigm for patients with Type 1 diabetes
Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a condition characterised by high blood sugar. In a healthy individual, blood sugar is regulated by insulin, a hormone that is produced by the beta cells of the pancreatic islets. When blood sugar levels are not regulated, the individual is at risk of short term health emergencies such as hypo- and hyper glycemia. Long term complications of diabetes include neuropathy, blindness, or even non-healing wounds that often result in amputation.
