Question for DocT or other MDs

I’m just wondering if you are aware of anyone
who is treating insulin dependent diabetes
(type 1) with C-peptide along with the
standard insulin therapy. There appears to be
growing evidence that not only is C-peptide
not useless, it may in fact be quite
important. Check this out:

PS - Don’t forget to remove the space before
“annals” in the link above.

As far as I know, it’s use is only research-oriented. I’m not sure that it’s available to MD’s that aren’t involved in these studies mentioned. However, you can bet that Eli-Lilly will be selling it ASAP if they can show a positive clinical effect.
