Some Type 1 Diabetes Patients Still Capable Of Producing Small Amounts Of Insulin



More than a decade after being diagnosed with the disease, researchers have discovered that almost half of people with type 1 diabetes are still producing some insulin. Researchers at Sweden’s Uppsala University found that people who still produced insulin despite their long-standing type 1 diabetes had higher levels of a protein called interleukin-35. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes the body’s immune system to mistakenly attack healthy cells in the pancreas that make insulin. According to UPI, the team has launched a new study to see if they may be able to boost insulin production in those people with type 1 diabetes who are still making insulin.
