This just doesn't sound right. Please check! ...Read more

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells.

Can stem cells be extracted from bone marrow. And with that can diabetes type II get any better! thanks?

Second part easy: at most only slightly better. The fundamental problem in type TWO diabetes isnt lack of insulin (typically the insulin level is elevated) it is unresponsiveness/resistance to insulin. So, if the insulin secreting cells were increased, nothing would happen from it. Sometimes, the insulin secreting cells are exhausted in type II but still, with the resistance, inceaeing the number wont help. ...Read more
