What is the latest cure for type-1 diabetes?

Q: How close are we to getting a cure for Type-1 diabetes? My 5 years old daughter is diabetic and is on a strict insulin regime.

A:Breakthroughs are unpredictable, but the improvement in technology is a continuous process. In the last few years, designer insulins have come; blood glucose (BG) testing has become easier, cheaper, more accurate; insulin needles and blood testing needles have become less painful; our understanding of how to manage has become better. Keep your daughters overall health: physical and mental: in the best possible shape, with regular contact with a god pediatric diabetologist, regular insulin, regular home BG monitoring, adjustments accordingly, regular glycosylated haemoglobin tests, and avoidance of psychological problems by proper handling and peer support (e.g. meeting other young diabetics) so that as and when the cure comes, she will be able to benefit from it. Till then, let her enjoy life and grow and develop as normally as possible.
