The Side Effects of Using Insulin
Diabetes is a group of metabolic disease either because the body does not produce enough insulin or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. Clinically, doctors inject insulin to patients especially to those who have Type 1 Diabetes. However, using insulin for a long time can lead to side effects. And the side effects go as follows:
1. The excessive injection of insulin will lead to low blood pressure. The symptoms accord with the degree of low blood pressure. Patients can feel hungry, uneasy, heart beating more quickly, mydriasis, anxious, dizzy, coma, tremble, and even faint from fear. They should be supported some sugar if necessary.
2. The area where insulin is injected is reddish, has subcutaneous nodule, and partial lipodystrophy, etc. So doctors should change the area frequently. A few patients have nettle-rash and have allergic shock some times, which can be solved by adrenaline. Anyhow, the method about how to use insulin must be correct.
Since that insulin injection has the above-mentioned side effect, we should find out a better treatment. With the development of medical technology and regenerative medicine, stem cell transplantation comes into being, which brings hope to those who are suffering from Diabetes.
The main physiological function of insulin is to adjust the metabolism, promote the intake and use of glucose, promote the combination of glucogen, inhibit gluconeogenesis, and lower the blood sugar. Why does Diabetes happen? Beta cells (beta-cells, β-cells) are a type of cell in the pancreas located in the so-called islets of Langerhans. They make up 65-80% of the cells in the islets. Beta cells make and release insulin, a hormone that controls the level of glucose in the blood.
In a word, the reason why Diabetes happen is that beta cells are damaged. Stem cells have two main abilities. The first one is self-renewing, namely, multi-generation division. The second one is multiplex differentiation. So Stem Cell Transplantation has unlimited abilities on repairing and regenerating all kinds of intrinsic cells. And therefore, the process is called “repair and reconstruct”.
