Can the progression from most similiar to type 2 diabetes to type 1 diabetes be slowed by including insulin in the treatment plan after pancreatic surgery? Wondering if insulin treatment rests the pancreas, preventing or slowing down beta cell burnout. Because most diabetic prescription drugs other than Metformin make the pancreas work harder. If I've misstated a fact or have misunderstood something, please let me know. Also, is insulin still considered bad for the heart?
