Stem Cell Technique May Aid in Diabetes Cure, Try these Superfoods that May Help too!

A cure for diabetes will be a boon for most of the population in the world, considering the increasing rates of diabetics. However it has emerged that scientists may be one step closer to finding a cure for diabetes with the help of a stem cell technique that can make insulin-producing cells from skin cells. According to a study published in the Journal Scientific Reports, the technique helped researchers to transform punctured skin cells from diabetics into insulin producing cells, which could then be transplanted under the skin of diabetics.

“The study discovers how “stand-in” cells can secrete insulin in the body”, said Helge Raeder, professor at the University of Bergen in Norway. “Our study is a step further in the spare part or regenerative medicine, where a lot may go wrong but where a successful approach may cure diabetes,” Raeder added, in the paper published in the journal.

Currently there is an ongoing rate between scientists trying to restore insulin secretion within the human body in diabetics, by artificially created insulin-producing cells. However, in…
