Advantages of Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Diabetic Nephropathy
Stem Cells, as its name indicate, just like seeds, can differentiate to all kinds of cells and grow into all kinds of organs under suitable environment. During treatment, stem cells are injected inside our body through vein autotransfusion or intravenous arterial duct; then induced by the pancreatic tissue microenvironment, stem cells can differentiate and proliferate into islet cells and substitute the damaged islet β-cell by secreting insulin.Therefore blood sugar can be reduced after Stem Cell Transplant.
Stem Cell Transplant is qualified with great advantages in treating Diabetic Nephropathy, which can be seen from the following aspects:
1. Strong repairing potentials
As is quite usual in our life, new skin grows soon after our hands get scratched. In fact, skin repairing is done by stem cells. However, with time going on, stem cells inside our body will gets aging. Stem Cell Transplant, by transfusing stem cells into our body, can treat Diabetic Nephropathy by repairing damaged pancreas and kidneys ,which is due to the strong repairing potentials of stem cells.
2. Promoting blood circulation
High blood sugar of Diabetes leads to focal blood circulation disorders and renal ischemia and anoxia, which is the cause for combined Diabetic Nephropathy. Stem Cell Transplant, by stimulating capillary endothelial growth factors, can improve renal focal circulation, provide sufficient oxygen for the damaged tissues, prevent glomerular necrosis and renal atrophies. Therefore, Stem Cell Transplant can fasten up the repairing process for damaged kidneys.
3. No Side effects
When taking a therapy for Diabetes and Diabetic Nephropathy, the safety factor should be ranked first. Stem cells, weak in antigenicity, can not be recognized by the immune system and bring no repulsion reaction.
Treatment effects of Stem Cell Transplant
Stem Cell Transplant can repair damaged renal intrinsic cells, activate dormant cell function, reconstruct renal capillaries and improve renal ischemia and anoxia state by increasing renal blood perfusion, and reconstruct an internal environment for the repairing of the cells. Therefore it can save kidney functions maximally.
With kidney function recovering, creatinine level will decrease spontaneously, dialysis frequency can also be reduced.
