Stem Cell Treatment For Diabetes


Diabetes Mellitus is a persistent and perpetual metabolism disorder. It is characterized by high blood glucose level that results in the inability to produce and/or use insulin.

ß cells in a healthy pancreas produce and release insulin, which controls glucose levels in the blood.  The number of ß cells is maintained by constant apoptosis and proliferation. However in diabetic patients the delicate balance in number is lost. Therefore protection of the remaining cells and adding a sufficient number of ß cells is the focus of cell therapy of diabetes.

Diabetes awareness is vital, since uncontrolled Diabetes may lead to devastating complications such as cardiovascular diseases, blindness, kidney failure, nerve damage, diabetic foot.

Currently lots of conventional therapies are available for diabetes such as insulin injection and oral hypoglycemic drugs. Many treatments can relieve or delay the onset and development of diabetes and related complications. Yet they do not address the root of the problem that causes pancreatic ß cell dysfunction.

The objective of stem cell treatment for Diabetes is to protect the remaining cells and replenish sufficent ß cells. The treatment enables patients to reduce their insulin and hypoglycemic medications, in some cases even stop taking them. Also relieves chronic diabetic complications.

Benefits

100% of 27 Diabetes patients gained improvements between the period of April to November 2010. 92.6% of patients improved within the first  month after treatment, which enabled them to gradually reduce insulin and medications. 7.4% of patients started to improve within 3 months after discharge.

Achieved results are seen as follows:
■62.9% of patients could decrease their insulin  injections & hypoglycemic medications by more than 50%
■3.7% of Type 1 and 11.1% of Type 2 patients could completely stop insulin injections
■improved pancreatic islet function
■stable blood glucose level throughout the day
■improved symptoms of diabetes associated complications such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy, diabetic macrovascular pathological changes, diabetic peripheral neuropathy and diabetic autonomic neuropathy

Diabetes Type 1 blood glucose level test. Before stem cell treatment & 1 month after transplantation
 

Our Stem Cell Therapy Programs:
 
Our most effective autologous adult stem cell therapy Programs we have developed for diabetic patients so far is either our Health Regen D Plus Program (Type II diabetes) or our Treat Regen Diabetes Program (Type I Diabetes).  Both programs make use of the Peripheral Blood Stem Cells method (PBSC) also known as the Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSC) method to treat patients.
 
The PBSC method makes use of a patient’s own adult stem cells (autologous adult stem cells) generated from the patient’s bone marrow.   In this method, hormone-like substances called stem cells mobilization growth factors are given to the patient a few days before the extraction (harvest) in order to stimulate a greater production of stem cells in the bone marrow which then migrate into the circulating blood.  The stem cells are then harvested from the circulating blood, cleaned, activated, and injected back to the patient.
 
This method has proven the most effective and is also our preferred procedure as generating stem cells this way is simple, safe and does not involve the risk associated with localized anesthesia and multiple invasive marrow aspirations.
 
Depending on the patient’s case, quite often injections of cytokines and other biological factor are also needed to regenerate pancreatic tissues.  Nutritional therapy together with functional medicine is also often provided to assist handle the problem of metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance that are commonly associated with type II diabetes. We also have nutritional experts on staff that can assist patients review their eating habits in order to lose weight and/or have a more balanced diet.  For many patients, chelation therapy and a detoxification program are a necessity as well.
 
For patients that want to prevent Type II diabetes, our rejuvenation (anti aging) stem cell therapy program has also proven very popular with patients that do not yet have Type II diabetes but come from families with a strong history of diabetes cases.  This rejuvenation stem cell therapy program lends itself very well in possibly assisting in the prevention or slowing down of Type II diabetes and the rejuvenation of organs and tissues in the body.
 


Expected Benefits:
 
Treatment results have been very encouraging for both Type I and Type II diabetes patients.  For Type I diabetes, treatment with stem cells combined with injections of other biological factors as proven very efficient in regenerating pancreatic tissues, and in some cases, eliminating the need by patients to inject themselves with insulin in order to control their blood sugar levels.
 
For Type II diabetes, our stem cell therapy treatment has shown that it can assist in better controlling sugar levels as well as being very effective in reducing or eliminating complications that may arise in patients suffering from Type II diabetes including for heart disease, eye complications, peripheral neuropathy and diabetes wounds, to name a few.
 
Although we cannot promise a complete cure from diabetes for patients that will undergo one of our stem cells therapies, we can certainly pledge that after our treatment, our patients will see a marked improvement in their condition and overall will feel healthier.
