Research Discovery – New Way to Treat Insulin Dependent Diabetes

Wow, exciting diabetes research news! My cousin George has a Wonderfully Curious Green Brain. He recently sent me a fascinating article about Dr. Eli Lewis, a diabetes expert at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

“Through research, Dr. Lewis found a use for a safe and thoroughly tested drug, Alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT). The FDA-approved protease inhibitor had been used for years to treat lung conditions such as emphysema — but in 2006, Lewis began experimenting with it as a way to treat insulin-dependent diabetes in its very early stages.”

    Many thanks for the credit for finding this valuable information/article! I pray that sooner rather than later, I’ll be able to forward news that modern medicine has won the battle against antibiotic resistant bacteria–just wishful thinking right now, but MAYO is doing research in that arena…

      Dear Cuz, You are welcome for the credit. I believe in giving attribution to those who help us, especially when they are family! I be waiting to hear more about your interest in antibiotic resistant bacteria. Your Uncle Al would have enjoyed talking to you about these subjects. You have his crazy sense of humor and his wonderful curiosity! Love to you and Audree. XXXOOO
