Stem Cells in Control of Diabetic Complications
How serious of diabetic complications are?
Complications of diabetes develop gradually. The poorer control your blood sugar is, the higher risk of complications you have. The diabetes complications may be disabling or even life-threatening. They may include:
Neuropathy. High blood sugar can damage the blood vessels that nourish your nerves, especially in the legs. It can cause tingling, numbness, burning or pain that usually spreads upward. If untreated, you could lose all sense of feeling in the affected limbs. For men, the nerve damage may lead to erectile dysfunction.
Kidney disease. Kidney disease is one of common complications in diabetics. It can lead to renal failure which is irreversible. In the end-stage renal disease, dialysis or kidney transplant is necessary
Eye damage. Eye damage by high blood sugar is the leading cause of blind in diabetics. About 4 percent of people with diabetes have eye problems which affect their ability to see.
Foot damage. Foot damage is also very serious complications which may lead to amputation.
Cancer. The people with diabetes have a higher risk of some cancers.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells which can differentiate into desired cells and are capable of self-renewal. They are infused into the body through veins. They can differentiate into insulin-producing cells which can increase the production of insulin in the body to regulate the blood sugar. On the other side, stem cells can produce new cells to replace the damaged ones which can restore the pancreas.
Stem cells therapy is a cell-based treatment for diabetes which regenerates new cells and insulin-producing cells to treat your disease.
In our hospital, the statistics show that diabetes patients who don’t receive stem cells therapy has higher risk of complications than these patients who get stem cells transplant. It means that stem cells work on the control of diabetic complications. In fact, high blood sugar is the underlying cause of all complications. Stem cells can reduce high blood sugar through regenerating cells and even reverse the diabetes.
Stem cells therapy is the newest treatment for diabetes in the world. It is more and more popular among diabetics
