Diagnosed in 1997.
Since I’ve had the transplants, I'm starting to get some signs of hypos back.
If we’re going to find a cure for people with type 1 diabetes, we need to find a way to help people produce their own insulin. That’s where islet transplants come in. They can help people avoid severe hypos and temporarily make enough insulin to reduce or even stop the amount they inject or pump.
We've backed research into islet transplants since the very beginning. Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to invest over £2.3 million in the last 10 years alone, and help make life with diabetes a little easier for people like Bruce. But we're not finished yet, and we need your help.
