Pancreas transplants are being heralded as a 'cure' for diabetes and also have the added effect of reducing diabetes related complications, i.e. kidney dysfunction. Recent studies conducted on patients receiving a pancreas transplant found that 80% of these people did not require insulin 4 years after the operation and there was also decreased blood pressure, cholesterol levels and protein excretion by the kidneys (a sign of kidney dysfunction).
