I was very fortunate to receive an islet cell transplant last month. I have been working on writing a blog about the experience and would like to share it with anyone who is interested in learning more about this option.
Here is the address http://kathy-mynewislets.blogspot.com

I am doing well and the islets are beginning to work.

I welcome any questions or comments,

Kathy

I never had to go to the hospital for my lows either. That was not a disqualifier for any of the screening protocols that I went through. As for the anti-rejection drugs, you just never know. I dont know if I am just lucky or have not been on them long enough to have any consequences. I do know that a high percentage of the screening test are designed to make sure that your kidneys, heart and other organs are healthy enough to withstand the possible toxicity of the drugs.
