The number of diabetes cases has doubled in the last three decades, confirmed a study. The researchers of the study stated that the main reason behind this increase is the population growth and the increase in the number of elderly people.
A group of researchers from St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto tried to reverse the Type-1 diabetes while examining the mice. But they have been criticized as the results of such animals may not prove to be fruitful for humans.
Earlier also, many a times, the researchers have tried to reverse the Type-1 diabetes in mice, but this time the researchers have tried to prevent the damage of the insulin-producing islet beta cells along with stimulating these cells that destroy immune system. GABA, a brain chemical, was used in the study which is created with pancreatic beta cells and it works for the immune system.
In the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, one of the researchers of the study stated, "In the present study, we demonstrated the therapeutic effects of GABA in the prevention and reversal of diabetes in Type-1 diabetes mouse models".
Patients suffering from Type-1 diabetes are more prone to kidney damage, can suffer from nerve damage and can have the vision troubles which can end up in blindness.
