Diabetes WebLog: Just wanted to let everyone know about a brand-new research result from a Japanese group, headed by Atsushi Suzuki: they have found that a fragment of proglucagon, the substance which breaks down to produce the anti-insulin hormone glucagon (which some of us use for hypos) will convert  gastric lining cells to insulin-producing beta-cells.   A really surprising and promising result......we all have an endless supply of gastric lining cells......but a very early step. - From my friend Malcolm

Today I bougth glucagon kit... Has I was looking at it, I realize that the people that made the kit think that the person giving it to the patient must be an experience person with syringes which is not the case. My husband is afraid of syringes, and even I that have been a diabetic type 1 was scard of that big syringe...Is there a nicer kit for people with a fobia to syringes?
