In brief: Pancreas transplant
Yes, there is. In fact, following successful pancreas transplantation, it is a life of euglycemia independent of Insulin administration.
No further need to plan exercise and diet around sugar levels and Insulin dosing. Many diabetic complications stabilize or reverse. No more midnight sugar checks looking for hypoglycemia. Downside: a big operation and the need for lifelong immunosuppression.
