Diabetes Stem Cell Treatment Overview

Diabetes is a type of autoimmune disease and classified as 2 types: type-1 is an inherited disorder which is caused when the body’s immune system misinterprets the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called islets, and destroys them; type-2 is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar and lack of insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas that regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates.

Diabetes when uncontrolled can lead to blindness, kidney failure, heart diseases and stroke. There is no permanent treatment for diabetes and insulin injections, however, stem cell transplant has proven successful in improving quality of life in people with diabetes. Own body stem cells taken from adipose tissue or bone marrow can re-organize the immune system so that it no longer attacks the beta cells. The new beta cells are able to sense blood sugar levels and react accordingly.

PREPARING FOR DIABETES STEM CELL TRANSPLANT

In order to prepare you for the stem cell transplant, detailed blood test, physical examination and family history is done to confirm your health status and point out any other existing medical condition. Since it is an autologous transplant your bone health will also be checked.

STEM CELL TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE

First the stem cells are extracted from bone marrow or adipose tissue through an incision and cannula (needle) is inserted in hip joint or umbilical area. This is done under local anaesthesia, also an option of general anaesthesia is also available for patients who need it. This procedure takes around 45mintes to complete. After the bone marrow or fat cells are extracted they are sent in laboratory from which stem cells are filtered from unwanted mature blood cells and plasma. and kept n cryopreservation.

Stem cells are implanted in your body by various ways most commonly intravenous or intramuscular administration. The procedure is through injection ensuring release of pool of stem cells directly to the pancreatic cells. Once the stem cells reach the islet cells in pancreas they stimulate beta cell function, thereby reducing or eliminating the requirement for insulin. The whole procedure is very quick, painless, simple and safe, and it is completed within only few hours.

POST-DIABETES STEM CELL TRANSPLANT

You may feel little discomfort and nauseous just after the transplant but it gets better by the time. Mostly patient can leave the same day or may require few days of hospital stay for observation in critical cases depending on the type of transplant method.

RECOVERY-PROCESS

For results to fully develop, it usually takes up to four months after the stem cells are injected into human organism during treatment. In the course of that time, a patient notices continuous new improvements. Since these stem cells come from your own body, there is also no risk of rejection. Procedure is usually successful, with experience of health benefits even six months after stem cell diabetes treatment. As the new cells control insulin secretion it provides an open window to make dietary changes, supplementation and exercise much more effective for long-term control of blood sugar. For a period of time after your transplant, you will be focusing on regaining your strength and stamina, and you will also be advised to avoid going in public places for a period of time after your transplant because of your decreased immune function and increased risk of infection.
