Is this a serious a question?
Yes it is.
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes two years ago, was told that i would be insulin dependent for the rest of my life. The cause of my diabetes (I was told) was genetic and set off by a severe viral infection (gastrointestinal) which damaged my pancreas. I was in the ICU for 5 days, on an insulin pump because I was DKA. I was told my body would never again produce it's own insulin.
A few months later, I found myself having to reduce my insulin daily to the point to where I couldn't even take it, and yet the doctors kept saying I needed to do the injections, as there was no way my body could produce insulin. I stopped taking the injections last February, and haven't had ANY issue with my blood sugar, which I still check often.
I didn't receive any 'miracle' stem cell research cure.

I would also, because the two different endocrinologists that I saw after I was originally diagnosed were adamant that there was no medical 'cure' or treatment for the type 1 diabetes that I was diagnosed as having other than self administering insulin injects. I checked, as I am (or was, rather) a needle phobic and cannot stand needles.
So yeah, show us the link of this miracle diabetes cure that comes from stem cell research.
