Hi: A type 2 er here on Novolin and Glipizide. How did my insulin cell die off to begin with?? And what do I have to take to grow them back?? I am 60 and 5'9" and weigh 225. Thanks for the help

Dr Joe,

Are you saying that Type 1 diabetics can be enabled to grow new pancreatic cells? Or are you talking about Type 2 diabetics only?


Dr. Joe Prendergast said...

Both. Type one still has 20 to 30 % of the Beta cells they were born with and the 2s have more. It takes 2 years for the 2s to regrow and roughly 3 year for the type ones. There will be individual differences but for all, this is really good news.

Dr. Joe Prendergast said...

There are multiple reasons why beta cells die off; Bydureon will begin the process of regrowing. It has the side effect of sliming down to the point of decreasing total weight of 20 to 30 pounds.

So the Bydureon Home Page is wrong when it states:
'BYDUREON is not for people with type 1 diabetes.'

How can the makers get this so wrong? Do they not know about your work?

The FDA makes a decision up front when a product goes into initial testing. They will not change their mind until the company applies for a change and submits lots of evidence to prove that is the correct decision.
