Question:

From Winter Haven, Florida, USA:

My son, who is 25, has had type 1 diabetes since age nine. Our primary care physician spoke of the research program yesterday. At this time, my husband's mother, who is in otherwise good health, is very close to expiring from Alzheimer's disease. Could she be a cell donor for him?

Answer:

Right now the higher age limit for islet donors is 50 to 60 years depending on the protocols.
