I think for me there would be alot less hospital visits for low blood sugar and doctors not asking what happened to you that your sugar dropped so low? I would never agian have to prick my fingers or worry about making sure I have enough insulin or all the calculating we have to do!! I would def. exercise more and eat a whole lot more peanut butter!!!

Ditto!
To actually freely exercise without hauling crackers and juice and glucometers (well, only one glucometer, but still!)... Who even knows how far I could go! 45 minutes might just be my warm-up!
And super-ditto on the other 2, I totally don't like how everything is connected and you can't fix one thing until you figure out 100 others first...

It would change the amount I eat, in that I wouldn't eat so much to correct for lows or almost-lows. The main way it would change my life is in how I work out. Think about it - to be able to work out without having to eat something to get that bg back up!! To be able to run for miles again without having to check my bg and without having the weird high-low-high problem I get when I work out for a over 45 minutes. It would be like heaven!!! Oh, and one other thing - perfectly regulated bg would mean no bouncy bg when it's "that time of the month" and no more "hoo-hoo" problems! That would be a side effect both I and my husband would appreciate!!!!

Unless that transplant comes with a gluten intolerance fix, I'd probably stay pretty much the same. I'd guess the first few weeks/months I'd abuse my new freedom, and here and there I'd splurge, and probably I'd end up eating ice cream for dinner a few times just to see how much ice cream I can eat at once, but I don't think it would make a big difference in the long run. I have never been one to limit my carbs though, I just count them and (try to) dose accordingly, knowing that if I don't' eat a relatively balanced meal I'm just not going to feel good regardless of what my blood sugar does.

I am so excited about this!! I mean it just goes to show our persistants towards research and education has really bumped up and we are now looking at the begining of getting that cure. I can not wait to have a day of freedom not having to deal with the meter and shots and dosing. I was thinking about it do you guys think you would change how you eat I mean in terms of the amount of foods we eat or serving sizes for me I doubt it. I do think I would add in some cake here or there maybe cookies but not to the extreme. what do you guys think?

CHICAGO (Reuters) - People with type 1 diabetes who got stem cell transplants were able to go as long as four years without needing insulin treatments, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday.

They said the process, which involves injecting people with stem cells made from their bone marrow cells, appears to have a lasting effect.

The study involved patients with Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, which occurs when the immune system goes haywire and starts attacking itself, destroying insulin-producing cells in the pancreas needed to control blood sugar.

These patients typically need daily insulin therapy to control their diabetes.

Dr. Richard Burt of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago and colleagues first reported on the short-term success of the procedure, known as autologous non-myeloablative hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation, in 2007 but have since looked at how long it persisted.

Writing in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association they said 20 of 23 patients "became insulin free -- 12 continuously and eight transiently -- for periods as long as four years." The transient group of eight had to restart insulin at reduced levels.

The patients ranged in age from 13 to 31.

To find out if the change was lasting the research team said they measured levels of C-peptides, which show how well the body is producing insulin. They found those levels increased "up to 24 months after transplantation and were maintained until at least 36 months," their report said.

Even in the group which had to restart insulin there was still a significant increase in C-peptide levels that lasted at least two years, the researchers said.

They said the procedure was able to induce "prolonged and significant increases of C-peptide levels" in the small group of patients who were taking little or no insulin.

"At the present time (it) remains the only treatment capable of reversing type 1 diabetes mellitus in humans," the team wrote.

"Randomized controlled trials and further biological studies are necessary to confirm the role of this treatment in changing the natural history of (the disease)," they added.
