    I don’t know if a diabetic who also has kidney failure would be medically well enough for a kidney transplant.
    In theory, a kidney transplant could help the person’s kidney issues, however, they would still have diabetes.
    Only a pancreas transplant can cure diabetes. A kidney transplant probably will not eliminate the need for insulin shots.
