Hello @santina,

I'd like to add my welcome, and also let you know that I moved your discussion and combined it with this existing discussion as I thought it would be beneficial for you to be introduced to other members talking about Type 1 diabetes.
If you click on VIEW & REPLY in your email notification, you will see the whole discussion and can join in, meet, and participate with other members talking about their or their loved ones' experiences.

I also found a recently published study, that shows how patients who had been treated with the BCG vaccine – vaccine used to prevent tuberculosis – had normal blood sugar levels eight years after the trial ended, and their Type 1 diabetes was reversed to almost undetectable levels. You can read the details here:

@santina and @johnbishop @hopeful33250 are you familiar with these findings?

Thanks for link Kanaaz @kanaazpereira. I was not aware of the study…interesting and hopeful.

@kanaazpereira

No, I was not familiar with these findings. It does sound very encouraging, though. There haven't been many studies that offer cures for any type of diabetes.

thank you so much, do you know anyone that reversed type one?
