A type 1 urban legend
I've seen this a couple of times recently and just wanted to add a comment here even though I know we don't have that many type 1s. I keep seeing that people seem to think pancreas transplants don't work for a T1 because of the initial autoimmune response. This is just untrue for several reasons. Firstly, when you have a pancreas transplant you are on immunosuppressive medications that stop your body from attacking the new organ. Secondly, there is some evidence that the initial autoimmune attack tends to fade with time, allowing for a more easily accepted new organ.
So any type 1s with kidney problems or severe hypoglycemic unawareness, be aware that a pancreas transplant is a helpful form of treatment. I've had mine for 3.5 years and it is working wonderfully.
