From Uruguay:

Can a person newly diagnosed with type 1 be cured or at least protect the amount of islets that are not dead? Is there a way to stop the autoimmune illness before it destroys all the islets?


There are currently research trials underway to test this hypothesis through TrialNet. The answer to the question is not yet available.
