I DON'T REALLY KNOW IF AM RIGHT,I DID A RESEARCH AND I DISCOVER THAT THE NEAR POSIBLE SOLUTION TO DIBETIES IS THE REPLACEMENT OF PANCRAES. IS IT POSSIBLE TO TRANSPLANT THE PANCRAES.

First of all, please don't type with all caps, it means that you are yelling to us ;)

I don't think that pancreas transplantation is possible. As we know, this gland is amorphous, and it relates to digestive system to secrete some enzymes and endocrine system to maintain blood glucose level. We have to deal with a lot of capillaries and its delicate connective tissues. It is not easy at all :?

Transplantation itself wouldn't change the attack on islet cells by the immune system (Type I diabetes) anyway - the only difference is that the immunosuppressants you'd be on for the transplants would prevent that. It's ultimately what will keep stem cells from working, too.

But then, immunosuppressants (without the transplant) in theory would stop the progression of Type I anyway. Not worth the downside, I guess.

possible? probably.
practical? no

if it isn't possible, constant use of insulin will do...

hi there.

the transplant of pancreas or of beta cells it is not solution for people with diabetes type 1- because of the immunosuppressants someone said about.

i hope that nobody here will mind if i post the address of the forum i made for my daughter who is type one. http://diabet.jconserv.net. it is a forum in romanian languagebut it has a section for people who don't speak romanian but speak english.

btw, MrMistery, i am from the same unknown small country as you :P

i am very new on this forum- i joined today.
and i posted a question here, but in another forum, exactly because of the diabetes: how does a bee function? does it have a glandular system? cause i know there is no pancreas... but a hepato-pancreatic system?

sorry for all my english mistakes or the biology ones.

Diabetes insipidus isn't a pancreas problem, it's a pituitary / hypophysis problem.
