Researchers: diabetes type 1 diabetes develops due to bacteria

Certain types of bacteria can destroy the cells that synthesize insulin. The lack of this hormone leads to the development of diabetes of the first type. This statement was made by scientists from Cardiff University. It is likely that other immune diseases are associated with bacterial infections, says Zee News.

Scientists talk about how the bacteria are killed a separate group of cells. Through the bloodstream continuously moving T-killers, performing the function of "security guards". When detected in the blood of bacteria, they quickly destroy it. In diabetes mellitus type 1 T-killer cells kill cells of the pancreas. As a result, the person required constant injections of insulin.

Yesterday, another study was conducted, dedicated to diabetes. In it, scientists were able to turn the disease around. As a therapeutic method, the researchers used programmed stem cells.
