Enhanced Stem Cells for Treating Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 & 2

Updated November 22, 2017 – In the unfortunate event you or perhaps a family member are coping with diabetes you should be aware of its consequences on the body and mind. Diabetes is usually termed the “silent killer” mainly because it strikes the body slowly and without warning. Newly diagnosed diabetic patients are usually not  worried about it since their symptoms are often no more severe than recurrent urination and increased thirst. A number of other individuals have no symptoms at all.

Treating Diabetics With Stem Cells

As time goes by however, the effects of both kinds of diabetes become increasingly serious and may lead to death. These symptoms include heart disease, eye issues, kidney failure, nerve damage and erectile dysfunction, to name a few. Hypoglycemia (acute low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high level of blood sugar) are the key contributors to the effects of diabetes. According to recent research, some of the oral diabetes medications can also help contribute to heart malfunction.(22817630) That is exactly why it’s important that women and men who are clinically diagnosed as “diabetic” immediately seek treatment to relieve hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. These conditions often trigger the more harmful, degenerative ailments. The regeneration center can help treat DM with our innovative enriched and expanded Mesenchymal cells treatment for Diabetes safely and without any artificial medicines or need for regular insulin dependency.(23837842)

Reverse Hyperglycemia with Insulin Producing Beta-Cells

Stem Cell treatments for diabetes fights the disease at its origins in the pancreas. Decreasing hyperglycemia as well as associated complications (see above).

 According to recent research, it can also relieve hypoglycemia or low level of blood sugar, which consequently can also lead to fatality if it is not treated immediately. Diabetic patients are treated by introducing enhanced MSC+ cells to the pancreatic area via IV or directly (severe cases). Diabetes is a metabolic disease with a significant inflammatory component wherein the individual has elevated level of blood sugar, because the human body cannot generate enough insulin, or maybe because the cells are no longer responding to the insulin produced naturally by the body. The high blood sugar levels instigate signs of polyuria or recurrent peeing, polydipsia or abnormal increase in thirst, and polyphagia,pancreatic cancerpancreatitis or the state of increased hunger and in severe cases lupus disease.(24352521)

3 Major Types of Diabetes Mellitus:

sc1Type 1 diabetes: results from your body’s failure to generate insulin, and currently requires the individual to inject insulin. (Likewise known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM for short, and juvenile diabetes)- Cell therapy to stop immune cells from destroying insulin producing pancreatic islet cells. The usual symptoms that are associated with Type 1 diabetes can include: Polydipsia (constant thirst), polyuria (excessive urination), polyphagia (constant hunger), weight loss, dry mouth and fatigue. A diagnosis of Type 1 results in the destruction of beta cells in the patient’s pancreas. Other known complications for type 1 diabetes include heart disease, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy and kidney disease. Type 1 diabetes is especially dangerous for women who have a 42% higher risk of mortality as compared to men. The average life expectancy for type 1 diabetics is less than 11 years for men and less than 13 years for females.(23844362)

Type 2 diabetes: results from insulin resistance, a condition wherein cells are not able to use insulin appropriately, sometimes coupled with a complete insulin deficiency. – Type 2 is often an acquired disease and if caught early is a very treatable condition at the regeneration center. Long-term risks of having diabetes include retinopathy (loss of vision), diabetic nephropathy which leads to kidney failure, peripheral neuropathy ( foot ulcers that lead to amputations or charcot joints ), and autonomic neuropathy that causes genitourinary, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular symptoms with sexual dysfunction. Patients diagnosed with diabetes also report increased occurrences of peripheral arterial disease (PAD),atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease. Other complications include Hypertension and severe abnormalities of lipoprotein metabolism. Many patients can also impair insulin secretion because of pharmaceutical medications they are taking. These medications do not directly cause diabetes, but they may might lead individuals to become insulin resistant.

Gestational Diabetes: is when pregnant women, who’ve never had diabetes before, have a high blood glucose level while being pregnant. It may precede development of type 2 DM.- We currently cannot treat Gestational diabetes with stem cell therapy.

  • FPG, fasting plasma glucose
  • HNF, hepatocyte nuclear factor
  • GAD, glutamic acid decarboxylase
  • GDM, gestational diabetes
  • GCT, glucose challenge test
  • IFG, impaired fasting glucose
  • MODY, maturity-onset diabetes (young)
  • IGT impaired glucose tolerance

Can Stem Cells Cure Diabetes?

At this stage, cures for Type 1 diabetes or gestational diabetes are very very low probability. There is a genetic component of the disease that will require gene therapy to reprogram the cells from reverting back to their compromised states however these solutions are just in the clinical trials stage and have not been approved for clinical applications. Type 2 Diabetes T2D however is usually treatable and reversible if caught early enough before it starts effecting other organs/systems in the body. Often time, patients simply ignore the disease and try to manage the symptoms using traditional diabetes medication (Metformin,Thiazolidinediones,DPP-4 inhibitors,Meglitinides), change of diet and/or regular insulin therapy. If left untreated, complications often occur and can include:

  • Foot Complications / Ulcers
  • Kidney Disease (Nephropathy)
  • Ketones & DKA (Ketoacidosis)
  • Ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease – IBD
  • High Blood Pressure & Hypertension ( leads to heart disease,eye problems )
  • Brain Strokes
  • HHNS
  • Gastroparesis
TREATMENT PRECAUTION
Please note patients with severe or multiple conditions may have travel restrictions and unable travel to Thailand. All potential candidates seeking treatment for DM must be approved in advance using current/actual medical records and results from recent blood panels including HbA1C, fasting plasma glucose (FPG), oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), Blood pressure and Lipid profiles.
 Treat Adult-Onset Diabetes with Beta Cell Transplants

Depending on the patients medical needs, Diabetics are most often treated by injection of lab enhanced autologous cells from peripheral blood (PBSC ) or Adipose tissue. Older patients or severe cases with multiple underlying conditions will require enhanced allogeneic stem cells (anti-HLA antibodies) that are differentiated into glucose-sensing, insulin-producing beta cells.

  • Hello, my name is Angela and I would like to know if there is any treatment for type 1 diabetes with stem cell therapy? Thank you very much, angela
  • Hi, I'm 62, got type 2 diabetes for nearly 16 years, High blood pressure, High cholesterol, and recently (about a year ago) ED. If I go for stem sell therapy, do you think it is safe and can it benefit me in any way? What type of stem cell therapy(s) you recommend I should go for? Many thanks and regards
  • I'm type 2 diabetic and had my diabetes controlled but Metformin has stopped working for me. Im trying a low-carbohydrate diet to keep my insulin needs as low as possible but not getting anywhere. For somereason none of my doctors are aware of stem cell therapy for diabetes and keep telling me to go back on metfromin or januvia but this seems like a waste of time. Is there clinica trials for diabetes yet? how can i get more information?
  • I am considering stem cell treatment for diabetics, type 2. Does this stem cell treatment cure your diabetes, so you can do away with the insulin injections and metformin?
  • Hello I have type 2 diabetes and now have started to having kidney problems. I want to come to Thailand for treatment. Can you treat both at the same time or do i have to come two times??
  • Two years ago my husband was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and his condition seems be be getting worse. We did change his diet but his A1C results are getting worse. He gets depressed because our doctors here are not being very helpful and keep pushing new medications on him that have terrible side effects. Can someone in your clinic advise us on what to do? maybe give us some advice to see it stem cell therapy can treat his diabetes. We would appreciate it. We don't have the same treatments Honolulu so we are considering coming to Thailand to see your medical specialists. Please contact us.
  • dear sir,I have DM. I am interested in stem cell therapy. I like to know about the estimated cost and duration of this therapy.
  • I had treatment for type 2 diabetes last year using adipose fat stem cells but the results were not good. I am now back again on daily Avandia because my condition not improve and now getting worse. I read about your treatment for diabetes using cord blood stem cells in the Eurostem cell website and am very interested. I do not want to keep taking oral medications and insulin injections. Please help.
