Side effects of insulin – can they be stopped?

C-peptide, yes, the c-peptide molecule when given with insulin may reduce the damage of insulin.

What damage you ask? Insulin causes some cells within blood vessels to grow and cause narrowing of the blood vessels. This in turns leads to heart problems, a risk in people with diabetes. Now researchers at the University of Leeds have found that C-peptide when administered with insulin stops these cells from growing. This will prevent many of the heart problems experienced by people with diabetes.

I have wondered why very few other publications or bloggers have not picked up on this article as important as this is. Telegraph dot co dot uk is only one of two places I have seen this article. It was published May 10, 2010. Please take time to read this important article.
