Diabetic Wound and Treatments
The pancreas makes a substance called insulin. Insulin moves glucose, a sugar, from the blood into the muscles, fat, and liver cells, where it can be used as fuel. In people with type 1 diabetes the pancreas does not make enough, or sometimes any insulin. This causes glucose to build up in the blood, leading to a high level of sugar in the blood. High blood sugar over a long time can cause many complications and risk factors like, heart attack, kidney failure and stroke. A pancreas transplant can cure diabetes and eliminate the need for insulin shots. Because of the risks involved with surgery, most people with Type I diabetes do not have a pancreas transplant just after they are diagnosed. Pancreas transplant is rarely done alone. It is almost always done when someone with type 1 diabetes also needs a kidney transplant.
