Yeah he can’t be anymore that 4. I joked he would be the best hitter on the Pirates right now.That's some great stuff right there - How old do you think that kid is (I'm thinking four at most). That's a heck of a nice swing.
I don't want to be negative but do they explain anywhere how this would help type 2s (which make up most of the total)? As I understand it their main issue is insulin resistance and their islets still produce insulin, no? This resistance can subsequently affect insulin production to some degree but it still seems like this development would aid them rather than truly curing them.
As I understand it this difference is the whole reason that the JDRF was created in the first place, soccer moms with type 1 kids were getting tired of seeing their donations being used mostly on type 2 related things.
They do mention that it is to used for type 2 as well as for type 1 but they don't go into the details. So I'm not sure.
EDIT: Some type 2s don't make enough insulin, so I would imagine it would help them. The other group of type 2s seems trickier for sure, maybe the insulin created by the stem cell treated blood makes more resistant insulin?
