My dad talked to a family member who lives in Mexico
. According to my aunt, a couple family members, who suffer from diabetes, had a pig pancreases transplanted into their forearms. I've heard of human pancreatic transplants to stop diabetes, but I've never heard of pig transplants. I did a yahoo search and found the following link.

I'm not sure if this is the same doctor my relatives went to see. I'm sure there are plenty of doctors (and non-doctors) performing these procedures to make money. I believe my dad said the procedure cost 500 dollars. That's a lot of money to those who live in Mexico. Medical procedures are not regulated the same in Mexico, as in the U.S.
My relatives' blood sugar levels have decreased since the transplant.
