Unfortunately, although it would be great if a raw diet helped with something similar to a cure, we all know that we need the real thing, something we can rely on and feel confident that it really is a cure. Long-term, stable, and without further risks. A Practical Cure, as we like to call it at the JDCA.

Just checked in again . Diabetic for 36 years about . When i became diabetic pumps were enoromus in comparsion and there were no home blood moitoring devices.Now my pump weighs very little it communicats with a sensor for my blood sugars,ok kind of works but that is pretty big change. To me the cure is you either never develop it or some how it is reversed. Still my hope and prayer is that it happens .

I believe YES there will be a cure in my lifetime & I can not wait for my son, and everybody's child, live free.

YES!

Much much more money in a cure and preventive vaccine.
Yes - it's probably the only solution to reducing health costs in government

and yes would you rather be a company selling test strips to people with Type 1 or selling a vaccine to everyone worldwide!

Definitely no.

Has anyone tabulated the results of this unoffical poll. I would be interested in knowing which way the group leans. I would do it but I'm to lazy.

No - for the same reason I still use batteries that have not gotten better - There is money to be made!

No not in my lifetime. The drug companies make far too much money off this disorder, where's the incentive for research. Clare

I was in the Edmonton Protocol study in Canada. Had 2 islet cell transplants in 2001. Was off of insulin for approx 1 month.
The technology has come so fast. When I was diagnosed in 1984 my glucose monitor was NEW to the market and was huge! Synthetic insulin had just come out as well.
I am now pumping and CGMing, and loving it!
I am not convinced that I will see the cure, but I do believe that the next generation will see it.

I dont think so,theres no problem with implanting beta cells,but the issue is in the immune system, how do they reset it again.And the insuline industries is wouldent want there customers to stop bying there products would they.

Jason Turner, Tu member, however not too active presently , has been insulin free for 7 years ; he was the 79 th person in Canada /islet cell transplant/Edmonton ...this sounds hopeful ...I will say YES .I will qualify as well ...some have a life time of xxx numbers of years ahead ...I am over 70 years of age :)!
