In brief: Do not know
The trigger and mechanism of islet cell destruction are not no where near to being well understood, let alone prevention.

In brief: Anti-rejection meds
I believe you are referring to islet cell transplantation.
At the time of your transplantation, you will be started on induction treatment (intravenous meds to suppress your immune system) as well as oral anti-rejection medications to prevent rejection episodes.
