London: A pill that could spell the end of type one diabetes has been created by researchers.The treatment, which could be available within three years, raises hopes that it will spare sufferers the daily ordeal of injecting insulin to stay alive.Insulin is the hormone that controls blood sugar levels as food is digested. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels are highly dangerous, causing damage to major organs, and without regular insulin injections a diabetic would rapidly lapse into a coma and may die, reports The Daily Express.Dr Adi Mor, of Tel Aviv University, said: “For the patient the drug is as good as a cure because it will allow the pancreas to continue to make insulin.“Apart from having to take a daily pill, they would effectively not be diabetic because they would have a functioning pancreas.”Initial trials’ results have just been published in the European Journal of Immunology and the European Journal of Pharmacology.Mor adapted the drug, called FTS, from one in the final stages of human trials to treat pancreatic cancer.
