I want to submit a question about the case of a child of four years old, with Type 1 Diabetes diagnosed since six months. Is there any possibility of reversion?

It depends on what you mean:
- A honeymoon is common in Type 1 diabetes for a few months after the initial diagnosis and therapy.
- With pancreatic or islet cell transplant surgery, patients can have entirely normal blood sugar levels, with normal glycohemoglobin levels, without any insulin injections.
