In brief: Pancreas transplant

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.

In brief: Complex but beBeth

Complex as there is need for immunosuppressive, but bett since it removes the need for Insulin and prevents progression of the "opathies" such as gastropathy, nephropathy, retinopathy, etc, .
