This is still in the very early stages. From the article:

"Diabetic mice became healthy virtually overnight after researchers injected a substance to counteract the effect of malfunctioning pain neurons in the pancreas.

"I couldn't believe it," said Dr. Michael Salter, a pain expert at the Hospital for Sick Children and one of the scientists. "Mice with diabetes suddenly didn't have diabetes any more."

Very interesting Marie! Thanks for posting that.

RE: Diabetes breakthrough

This seems to primarily affect type 1 diabetes but still very interesting. Has anyone here tried vinegar or pickles before a meal? I understand that it has proven very effective in prediabetics, prevents the high sugar spikes. Further studies are being done but that is also interesting.
