I was stuck waiting for an appointment today and starting reading the WebMD magazine. They had an article about a scientist whose one-year old baby had Type 1 diabetes. That baby is going to college now and his father has developed an artificial pancreas that may be on the market by 2017 or 2018. It is called the iLet and works with an iPhone to regulate insulin and glucose much more simply and easier than a pump.
Real life begins where your comfort zone ends
Consider this study to regenerate the pancreas. It says some fruits help to restore pancreas in diabetics.
"Generally, low glycemic index fruits, such as berries -- especially wild blueberries, work to heal and strengthen the pancreas naturally. Citrus, and apples which score low on the glycemic index, but are super high in phytonutrients, are another healing fruit to enjoy daily due to the incredible bioavailable vitamins, minerals and antioxidant properties these foods hold.
"Some other berries to incorporate into your diet every day include strawberries, raspberries, blackberries elderberries and gooseberries. Begin increasing these fruits in your diet as your insulin intake drops and then slowly incorporate more into the diet."
