Re: [IP] transplant



As for a transplant, being off of insulin is only about a 30% possibility.  
Due to the antirejection medications you have to take (anywhere from 
cyclosporine, Prograf, or steroids), your quality of life is not very high.  
The people I have talked with and worked with were actually sorry they did it 
(or were so bad off that it was their only choice).  Keep hoping for 
autologus beta cell replication and injection.  That is a much more promising 
avenue.
Good luck,
