- A cure for diabetes will be a boon for most of the population
- Scientists may be one step closer to finding a cure for diabetes
- It is imperative for diabetics to take immense care of their lifestyle
"The study discovers how "stand-in" cells can secrete insulin in the body", said Helge Raeder, professor at the University of Bergen in Norway. "Our study is a step further in the spare part or regenerative medicine, where a lot may go wrong but where a successful approach may cure diabetes," Raeder added, in the paper published in the journal.
Currently there is an ongoing rate between scientists trying to restore insulin secretion within the human body in diabetics, by artificially created insulin-producing cells. However, in the longer run, they aim to replace insulin shots and blood sugar measurements with insulin secreting cells capable of automatically secreting insulin in response to the blood sugar level.
Scientist will eventually come up with a cure for diabetics, while it is still in process, it is imperative for diabetics to take immense care of their lifestyle which also includes food. A proper diet will not only help ensure a healthy body but will also keep a check on the blood sugar levels.
