Hi Marel and Welcome!
I'm sad to say, "NO! This experiment to cure diabetes using mice and probiotics will not work for any type of Diabetes. Mice and people are no where similar. I cannot believe the government is still wasting tax payers money by continuing to give it to scientists conducting these ridiculous studies.
There have been so many experiments done with mice to cure diabetes through the years and none have worked for us. They just continue disappointing people.
Real Scientists and Drs. are beyond using mice. Dr. Faustman and others at Joslin Diabetes Centre and elsewhere have come close to curing Type 1's but the darn immune system continues messing things up. Stem cells have been tried also. Most of us Long Termers have given up hope for a cure in our time. Both Type 1, Type 1.5, Type 2's and others are very complicated diseases.
Low carb diets back in the early 1900's kept Diabetics alive for usually 6 months to a year. It was only 500-600 calories. It was called the Starvation diet. Eventually people in North America forgot about
low carb diet after insulin was discovered. Then, I think it was Dr. Bernstein who brought it back thankfully.
I found out about
low carb diet back in 2006 on other forums and we've been passing it along since, even to our Doctors. Some still do not agree with it however. They prefer for us to eat 60 gms. of carbs for each meal, which is ridiculous. It is not a cure but it is good for maintaining our blood glucose levels much of the time. I'm on drugs for other diseases, so I lost my appetite. I had to switch to a moderate carb diet which is working okay for me along with using a bit more Insulin, of course.
You've probably heard this all before but it's worth recalling.
