Medicine makes progress: A triple transplant!

Medicine is offering new hope, and new successes everyday. It is not certain that all of these advances will be available or all - pervading soon, but the path is being paved for more success in sustaining life.

Diabetes is a horrible disease, and while prediabetics may have a chance at combating or preventing Type II with planning, people who have autoimmune diseases that destroy their own organs, and thus are prone to Type I have no chance.

Or so it was, in the past. With this successful transplantation of a damaged liver, pancreas and the kideny, Australian doctors presented a challenge to the realm of diseases.

It is interesting to observe and find out how many such multiple transplants might become possible in the future.
