Replacing insulin isn't a "cure"
Replacing the beta cells of the pancreas without the body attacking them or being able to keep them isolated from the rogue T-Cells that attack the beta cells is the only true cure to type 1 diabetes.
The "insulin" that they make from recombining the dna (GMO) of e-coli bacteria is not the same thing as the pro-insulin that the body makes which has C-Peptide. That's what leads to conditions such as hypoglycemia unawareness which affects approximately 17% of all type 1 diabetics specifically. Also, the lack of C-Peptide can over the years reduce peripheral circulation to the extremities (I have read more than 1 medical study for both topics mentioned above).
Another thing that bothers me is the fact that they use meta-cresol to preserve the insulin, which is a highly carcinogenic chemical and is dangerous. A lot of doctors would say, "There's only 30mg to the whole bottle, and a small amount of something toxic is ok." I disagree.
They've been saying since 1922 that this will be cured "in the next 5 years or so." Yeah right. I am not drinking any of the Kool-Aid.
All I can say is no wonder it burns like heck when injecting the insulin subcutaneously!
The pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly made the first insulin analogue (synthetic). While I am grateful that they make this fake insulin, it is a disease that should've been cured by now.
If you want to see the best shot at a cure that might be in the future, see the link in my signature. I just hope that Dr. Shapiro and his team will be allowed to get it to the mainstream.
I don't believe internal medicine doctors would want the illnesses to be cured. Look at how much money it makes! I'm sure that endocrinologists would be of some service if this were cured. There are plenty of other endocrine disorders to "treat" and not "cure".
I suppose that you would say that a small amount of a harmful substance like M-Cresol is just fine.
It baffles me that we can drill oil from tens of thousands of feet under the water, we can fly into space, we can build things such as geosynchronous satellites, but WE STILL CANNOT CURE DIABETES

please accept my apology for that rude comment putting words into your mouth
it makes me feel much better that most doctors want the diseases cured
I hope that this research proves to be a success. I hope they find the cure soon.

Many medical databases say clearly that it lowers blood sugar. So yes, it's been acknowledged by the medical community.....
Can you provide sources for these databases? The main one used in medical training programs (UpToDate) says, specifically:
As an example, a meta-analysis of 10 clinical trials of cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia, mean dose 2 g daily for 4 to 16 weeks) in patients with diabetes (predominantly type 2) did not show a significant beneficial effect of cinnamon on A1C, postprandial glucose, or serum insulin levels .
I would like you to the page, but it requires a login. Though, if you have a login for UpToDate (lots of public libraries have them, if you aren't at a university or hospital that has one), so if you DO have one, I would be more than happy to provide the link!

Yes, cinnamon works wonders for several ailments. You would be surprised what coconut oil and raw coconut will do for you as well. Eating a common fruit before going to bed solves the acid reflux problem but big pharma will never tell you about it and don't expect your doctor to either. Just make sure that the fruits and veggies are non GMO or it doesn't work.
