A NEW drug to treat diabetes has been discovered by scientists which could help patients do away with daily injections.

Researchers at Harvard University believe they have found a hormone which can boost the number of insulin-making cells, it was reported today.

The betatrophin hormone could have the power to halt type 2 diabetes.

Scientists are hopeful the drug could lead to the treatment once a year, rather than daily insulin injections for patients.

Complications of high blood sugar include heart disease, blindness, nerve and circulatory damage.
