HeConnection-ConnectedWrestling with how to respond to questions about Gabriel and Nathan’s medical status, the term “Recovering” Diabetics” came to my mind. Due to the fact that their pancreatic lab values and blood glucose levels have returned to acceptable normal ranges, theoretically they would be termed as being in remission.  We do not have the ability to determine exactly how this has happened and to what extent they have recovered because there is no current imaging or test that can track how many beta cells are present in the pancreas.  One fellow Type 1 parent once commented, “Researchers should be dissecting your boys to see what has happened.” We are not willing to go that far to contribute to the advancement of science! Nevertheless, we believe that their early diagnosis and intervention may have much to contribute to finding possible solutions for this dreadful disease.
