Complex interaction: Diabetes is a complex disorder involving the way that Insulin is released and handled by cells in the body in response to blood glucose levels. In type i diabetes, if the pancreas is not producing Insulin at all, there may some hope that stem cell research could allow Insulin producing cells to be implanted in the body, which could be a cure. In type ii, proper diet, exercise, and weight loss help.
