Pancreas transplants are very rare and done only in extremely bad type 1s however there is a less invasive operation of transplanting pancreatic islets or more specifically injecting beta cells into the body. These beta cells can be derived from another person or can be artificially manufactured using human stem cells or skin cells dedifferentiated then differentiated into B cells. A transplant can last 7-14 years apparently effectively saving the NHS millions and reducing diabetes complications. So why won’t they do it? Why do they have to slowly kill us?
