    Sorry, I've never heard of it, Salem.

    Why don't you search Google for pancreas cell transplant.

    Articel here:

    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/islet-cell-transplants.html

    The procedure is still in development and is not for Type 2 diabetics, but only for Type 1 who have major problems with control using insulin injections.

    Because this is a transplant the recipient will need to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of his/her life and these have side effects.

    Most patients still require small doses of injected insulin after the transplant as well as all the anti-rejection drugs.

    So for T2s I would guess that the standard drugs plus diet and exercise are far safer than the anti-rejection drugs required after a transplant.

    Look around the site for advice on how to manage T2 diabetes :)
