There are multiple forms of diabetes. The most common forms are type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, patients don’t make enough insulin. In type 2 diabetes, patients don’t use their insulin well.
In both cases, we can treat that with either insulin or pills. A pancreas transplant is potentially appropriate for both.
