Stem Cell Therapy Diabetes

Diabetes develops when either insulin is not produced in sufficient quantities Type 1 Diabetes) or the insulin produced is defective and cannot move the glucose into the cells (Type 2 Diabetes). Stem cell therapy may have the potential to replace insulin producing cells in the body. The undifferentiated cells may heal the body by replacing ones plagued with disease by regenerating new cells. Improvements have been seen in the following symptoms after treatment:
  • Better glucose levels and control
  • Significant decreases in insulin requirement
  • Higher energy levels
Stem Cell Therapy Diabetes is where stem cells are administered as a potential therapy for Diabetes, the stem cells are administered through IV. Intravenous administration is delivered directly into the vein. Anecdotally, results for diabetes have been overwhelmingly positive but there is more that needs to be done to determine the exact effectiveness of these therapies. After stem cells have been administered into someone’s body they have to make their way to the correct place and then have their desired effect. This process takes time and although it is difficult to predict exactly how long, it is likely that it will take several weeks or months on average to see the full desired effect. Stem cell therapy may be repeated. Current studies indicate the strong possibility of a cumulative effect from multiple stem cell therapies a patient received for their condition.
