    type one diabetes

    My grandson is a type one diabetic for 18 years now.One year ago he had stem cell treatments for diabetes and now he is having blood sugar lows ,once as low as 16,when he has not taken any insulin.Tests have not shown his pancreas to be working but something is happening and we're looking for answers.Any help would be appreciated.

    RE: type one diabetes

    Stem cell treatment? Or Islet cells? I've never heard of stem cells working. Islet cells do work, but not like a normal pancreas. So it is possible to go low. Did his liver kick in and bring his blood sugar back up? Mine did in the early years after my pancreas transplant but things settled down. Things should settle down.
