Stem Cells for Kidney Disease & Renal Failure

Each kidney in the human body consists of about 1 million nephrons that are basically “filtering” units. Every nephron features a glomerulus which consist of a cluster of tiny blood vessels. Inside a kidney, toxins in blood may be removed through the glomerulus structure. High blood sugar often make the blood vessels thicken and become damaged triggering the Kidney Failure process.

Renal Failure & Chronic Kidney Disease

Kidney Failure tends to disproportionately affect patients with other underlying medical conditions such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, pancreatitis, or Diabetes Mellitus. Doctors believe that sustained uncontrolled high blood sugar (and also high blood pressure) is the main cause of kidney failure for most people. Not all Diabetic patients have to suffer from eventual failure requiring a transplant or require emergency reversal of kidney disease with stem cells.  The Kidneys have the function of eliminating excess fluids from the blood through our urine. When kidneys start to fail, this function gets disrupted. More fluids start collecting in the body. Then, swelling begins. Patients often report have swollen eyes as well as swollen legs after some time the entire body might swells up.

Renal Epithelial Nephron Cell Regeneration

A properly functioning kidney contains about 2-3 million nephron cells that are responsible for proper blood filtration. Our Kidney Regeneration protocol uses more than 17 distinct types of specialised cells needed to repair the connective tissues, collecting ducts,blood vessels and connective tissue with stem cells.

When excess fluids and waste can’t be removed from the body naturally, patients begin to lose appetite. They might even begin vomiting  frequently as the bodies struggles with the excess stored waste. As kidney begin to lose functions other symptoms take hold, such as retaining helpful proteins in the blood supply called proteinuria. Proteinuria can be easily discovered with a simple urine test. Kidney disease patients who also have Diabetes can find that their urine turns out to be a little foamy in appearance.


Types of Acute Renal Failure

  • Recurrent kidney stones
  • “Anaemia” Low blood count from kidney disease
  • Kidney induced Lupus
  • Haemodialysis Elimination
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Renal artery stenosis
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Chronic or long term Dialysis at Hospital
  • Interstitial nephritis
  • Acute kidney failure – Sudden
  • Protein or Blood in the urine
  • Kidneys damage due to high blood pressure
  • Polycystic kidneys
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD)

Clinical studies have shown that red blood cells have the function of carrying oxygen from the lungs to provide all of the body’s requirements and to provide you the energy you’ll need for your day-to-day activities. Nevertheless, a failing kidney cannot secrete sufficient erythropoietin and lower levels of erythropoietin do not stimulate the bone marrow to be able to produce more red cells which results in anemia. When a patient has anemia, they might notice the skin or gums in the mouth are pale in color.(18564903)

Stem Cell Treatment for Kidney Failure

Alternative Solutions For Kidney Disease without Dialysis or Transplants

Stem cells are the humans bodies repair mechanism. Stem cells can differentiate into any functional tissue cells. Kidney cells necrosis and/or kidney-cell-transplants-bangkokdecreased kidney functions can be seen in abnormal creatinine levels. Our Approved Stem cell Transplants for Renal Failure help to replenish the required kidney cells and thus promote a more normal healthy kidney function. There are two types of stem cells treatments that may be utilized in our Regenerative protocols for Renal failure using stem cells. One part of treatment is focuses on promoting proper kidney function, and the other would be to replenish red blood cell amounts to help reverse the decline in HGB level. The autologous mesenchymal cells are transfused back into your body through a simple blood transfusion that allows the circulating stem cells could to reach the kidneys via normal blood circulation. This breakthrough treatment for renal failure can be done with and without dialysis and demands no surgical operation that requires extended hospital stays only at the Regeneration Center of Thailand. The mesenchymal stem cell treatment for kidney disease is done in multiple stages but each daily session takes about two hours each time.(20620502)


For those suffering from moderate to late/terminal stage kidney failure, allogeneic cell therapy could help them by eliminating the need for dialysis or decreasing the frequency of dialysis. For patients with early stage of renal failure or kidney disease, the stem cell therapy prevents further damage on the kidneys functions, thus promoting regular kidney function. This treatment gives the patient an assurance that he/she will continue living his/her normal life without worrying about worsening of his/her kidneys.(18688653)

Please Note Late Stage Renal Failure Presents Many Complications. Travel to Thailand may not be ideal and may result in Disqualification for Treatment. All Treatments Must Be Approved in Advance Upon Submission of Current/Actual Medical Records From Patients Home Country.
Reverse Failing Kidneys with Enhanced Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Number of MSCs Injections for Treatment of Nephron Failure: 2-8 Infusions of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Mesenchymal Kidney Stem cells (Per Treatment stage requirement)

Types of Stem Cells and Delivery Method: Lab Enriched Mesenchymal Stem cells that are derived from HLA Matched Allogeneic stem cells, Cord blood stem cells,Placenta derived cells or for less severe conditions using Autologous cells that are derived from Peripheral Blood or Adipose Tissue depending on the severity of the underlying disease as needed. Our treatment does not require dangerous surgeries and the delivery of the cells will are usually made via a Guided CT Scanner (when necessary) or more commonly through an Intravenous Drip,Direct injection or Intrathecal Injections.(22553996)

Rehabilitation Options Post Treatment: Physical Rehabilitation therapy in Bangkok is typically not required unless there are other physical issues. Complete physical rehab services post-therapy can be provided upon request for 2-4 hours per day and up to 5 days per week. 
Medical travel visas and extended stay accommodations at a hotel or extended stay apartment for the patient and family can also be provided upon request.

Total Treatment Time Needed in Thailand:estimated around 2-3 weeks (depending on the severity of the underlying injury). Late Stage may require multiple stages to be effective in dialysis cessation and reversal of kidney disease.

Cost for Kidney Cell Transplants

Our non-surgical cell based treatment for renal failure / kidney dysfunction will require a minimum of 10-21 nights in Bangkok. Due to the varying degrees of Kidney damage and the stage/severity of the underlying disease our medical team and Nephrologists will need to qualify the potential patients needs before a detailed treatment protocol can be provided. Upon approval and acceptance, a detailed treatment plan will be provided that includes specifics and daily calendar for the total treatment plan along with the fixed medical related expenses (excluding accommodations or flights). To begin the qualification process for our multi-stage treatment protocol for CKD, Polycystic Kidney disease or Kidney/Renal Failure please prepare your recent medical records such as CT Scans,PET Scans and Creatinine levels/blood work and contact us today.

    Hi Team

    I was referred to you by one of my friends. One of my office colleague is suffering from Kidney Disease. Doctors have not been able to identify the root cause of the disease and mention it as genetic.

    He is 35year old non smoker, non drinker, pure vegetarian person.

    His Creatinine level is 9.2 and is fluctuating between 7.5 and 9.

    Yesterday he is admitted to One of the hospitals in Pune, India and Fistula has been installed as a start up to Dialysis.

    I was suggested by one of my friends that Stem Cell Treatment at your center works wonders and the patient can still be cured. Please let me know if you need any further details of the patient and with this Creatinine level is it possible for Stem Cell Treatment.

      My mother has been on dialysis 2 days a week for the last 3 years.

      She still produces some urine and goes a few times a day. We are interested to know more about stem cell therapy and whether there is a possibility to regain some function ? What are the costs in involved and the number of treatments.

      Please help.

    My husband is 72 years old and has CKD, he is undergoing drug treatment, but the nephrologist has told him that his kidneys are failing and he will need to have dialysis or a transplant in the next 6 months. He also had a heart attack 5 years ago and has had three stents implanted. He is currently undergoing tests at our hospital to see if his heart is strong enough to have a kidney transplant.

    Please advise if there would be any chance of his kidneys regenerating or recovering with stem cell treatment.

    Any advice or help you can give and also cost would be very welcome.

    I am age 72 still active with Gfr=17 due to uro blocking which has been removed by surgery. I leave in Belgium.
    Of course I go to nephrologist for check up twice a year . Only bad parameter is creatinine resulting in stage 4 Gfr and high cholesterol which i now cure by taking statins.
    Igo to Taiwan for work twice a year and often stop in Thailand on my way back .Could stem cell treatment have a chance to improve and regenerate some nephron deficiency?
