Pancreas or islet transplant
The pancreas is the part of the body that should produce insulin, and islets are the cells in the pancreas that do this.
A pancreas or islet transplant allows the body to produce its own insulin again. You may be assessed for this in a specialist centre if:
you keep having severe hypos that do not improve with other treatments or
you have had a kidney transplant and are having problems with your diabetes, particularly hypos.
