Recognizing when you need islet transplantation

The indications for islet transplantation are the same as those for whole pancreas transplantation: The patient suffers from debilitating hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia or has significant complications of diabetes. If you want to join a clinical trial, you'll be fully evaluated by a doctor before undergoing the procedure.

Islet transplantation is most successful when the patient is taking a low dose of insulin. Any patient whose insulin use is 40 units daily or less is an excellent candidate for this procedure.
