Thanks Tim! What about the immune attack on the pig islets? Wouldn't we still have to take immunosuppressants? I watched Jason's video and it is so moving.

I guess it becomes anti-rejection meds vs. insulin and choosing which is worse... That's why I like the sheets so much - it gets rid of the need for the new meds and to me... that is what I want.
Hi Rachel, I agree, as I understand it you would. Right now I'm on a pump, and I love it. I'm open to learning all I can about any option out there, but I definitely want to know more before I make a major change which will have lasting implications.
Anti-rejection meds concern me. Maybe it's the devil I know vs. the devil I don't thing. My nephew is awaiting a lung transplant because he has cystic fibrosis. Was frightening reading what he has to take.
