Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetes Mellitus or Diabetes type II is a condition where the body either doesn’t produce its own insulin or doesn’t respond to the insulin that is being produced. This often happens because the patient’s pancreas, the organ responsible for insulin creation, does not function correctly.
This is the case when a patient has Type I diabetes, and the symptoms often become obvious during a patient’s childhood. In other cases, the body may have built up an insulin resistance over time due to obesity or poor diet; this is referred to as Type II diabetes and is more common in older adults. When glucose stays in the blood, rather than being absorbed by the body, it can result in vascular, ophthalmic damage and nerve problems. These complications can be serious and, if left unattended, become life-threatening.
Although managing diet and exercise is an important part of staying healthy for people with diabetes mellitus, the condition cannot be treated through diet alone. Most people suffering from diabetes mellitus (type II) must regulate it through careful blood glucose monitoring and insulin injections. For decades, this was the only option available for diabetes patients. More recently, however, a new opportunity has arisen utilizing stem cell research.
Stem cells are cells that have not yet become specialized to a specific body part. These cells take on the shape of the cells around them. This means that a stem cell transplant will enable those cells to grow into the role of whatever body part they’re implanted into. This, in turn, can knit together damaged tissue and help to regenerate body parts. In the case of diabetes patients, stem cells can be used to regrow a damaged pancreas and otherwise promote healing within the body.
Stem cells are a special type of cell that has not yet dedicated itself to a particular type of tissue. Most cells in the body are specific and local to a certain body part. For example, skin cells always make new skin cells, and brain cells always make new brain cells. Stem cells are not limited in this way. Instead, these new cells will take on the form of the tissue that surrounds them.
Because of this property, stem cells can be effectively used to aid in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues. This is at the heart of stem cell therapy and is why these treatments can be so effective for patients suffering from Diabetes Type II by giving worn-down tissue the proper tools to repair itself, the body can regenerate naturally.
Stem cell therapy has been shown to have beneficial effects in patients whose tissues or organs have weakened or shown signs of fatigue. The weakness and degeneration of these systems can be counteracted or reversed through this treatment. In effect, stem cells invigorate the other tissue and boost the body’s organic functions.
Our Diabetes treatment differs from standard methods by attacking the root cause inside the pancreas. Most type 2 diabetic patients can be helped with Stem Cells from adipose tissue or Umbilical Cord.
Typically this is an outpatient procedure. however, patients may stay for 2 nights in our facilities.
Stem cell therapy is focused on affecting physical changes in the organ that can improve a patient’s quality of life. Most Diabetes Type 2 patients are treated by IV, injecting the stem cells into the blood which transports them up the pancreas. Another procedure, by which the stem cells are surgically implanted directly into the pancreas is also available.
