right now there is no cure, i heard they are doing some experiement on gene theraphy and stem cell transplant theraphy, i wish there attempt be successful and let us be free from this suffering.

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Gene therapy, is a possible prospectus for type 1 diabetes in near future. Currently insulin is the mode of treatment for diabetes.

With insulin blood sugar controlled, even type 1 diabetes people can lead completely normal life.
