Type 1 Diabetics and Amylin


#1

I am a type 1 diabetic and have been doing some research on amylin. From what I understand, it is secreted from the beta cells with insulin and helps to blunt the release of glucagon and to slow gastric emptying, thus type 1 diabetics probably don't make amylin. I've heard some good things but nothing first hand. What do people think?
