HELP TO HAVE A FUNCTIONAL CURE FOR TYPE 1 DIABETES!
Type 1 Diabetes is a rare autoimmune disease which has no cure yet. Each year the health Insurance System is responsible fo 90 billion dollars to cover all medications and insulins, as well as, electronic supplies(Glucose monitoring systems and insulin delivery pumps) for patients with type 1 diabetes. But there are a lot of organizations and pharmaceuticals such as DRI, DRIFCAN, NIH,VIACYTE, VERTEX, SERNOVA, SANOFI, BETALIN THERAPEUTICALS making deep research simultenously having efficiacy on a functional cure for TYPE 1 DIABETES.But those Institutions and Companies are not able to continue their research because the funding for these research is insufficient to go on. Recently released documentary film "The Human Trial" directed by Lisa Herpner deals with the research being made by different Institutions,organizations and companies on a functional cure for type 1 diabetes. Our goal is to raise our voice to call all governments and funding sources to join us and put the hands together to get the funtional cure for type 1 diabetes.
Why is this important?
I'm a mother of a boy diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.Type 1 diabetes is a rare disease whic is caused by malfunctioning of body's immune system. Body's immune system destroys the beta cells in a pancreas which are responsible to produce insulin and control the blood glucose level. Type 1 diabetes is currently treated by daily insulin injections several times after or before each mealtime. An uncontrolled blood glucose level may cause blindness, kidney failure, neuropathy and cardivascular diseases. Type 1 diabetes is a heavy burden mentally, physically and financially to all memmbers of the family. We urgently need a cure for type 1 diabetes!
