Diabetes Type 2 Stem Cell Treatment

Diabetes 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. It is typically a chronic disease with a ten-year shortened life expectancy and symptoms such as: increased thirst, frequent urination, and constant hunger.

There are a number of associated complications including: two to four times the risk of a cardiovascular disease and stroke, a 20-fold increase in lower limb amputations, and increased hospitalizations. Type 2 diabetes is the largest cause of non-traumatic blindness and kidney failure. It is associated with an increased risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Other complications include: sexual dysfunction and frequent infections.

Causes of type 2 diabetes:

— obesity
— poor diet
— low activity level
— genetics and family history

Other diabetes risk factors include old age, high blood pressure, history of gestational diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, impaired glucose intolerance and ethnicity, as African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans are prone to an increased incidence of diabetes because of a history of gestational diabetes.

With Type 2 Diabetes the body becomes insensitive and less able to produce insulin, which transports glucose from the bloodstream into body tissues. Instead the sugar volume in the blood builds up. The pancreas may increase insulin production but it does not rectify the problem.

Other symptoms of this disease include blurred vision, fatigue, increased appetite, thirst and urination, slow-healing or frequent infections and erectile dysfunction. In both forms of diabetes, unless treated, blood sugar will rise uncontrollably, and over time can lead to such complications as cardiovascular disease, liver disease, kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy), circulatory problems that may require limb amputation, vision loss and blindness (diabetic retinopathy), and nerve damage (diabetic neuropathy).

Stem Cell Treatment for Diabetes Type 2 in Swiss Medica Clinic

Swiss Medica Clinic found that adipose derived stem cells of patients with T2DM would lead to abolition or reduction of insulin requirement by 80% (or more) over a 6-month period. Mesenchymal stem cells in patients with diabetes type 2 lead to increased development of new blood vessels, secretion of various products of the immune system and upregulation of pancreatic transcription factors and vascular growth factors. All this creates a micro-environment which supports beta cell/resident stem cell activation and survival.

In each of these cases, using one’s own stem cells can help the pancreas regenerate and boost its ability to produce insulin.

Procedure continues to be successful, with patients experiencing health benefits even six months after stem cell diabetes treatment.

Repeated applications of adipose stem cells is the most effective treatment for diabetes type 2, offering an open window to make dietary changes, supplementation and exercise much more effective for long-term control of blood sugar.

Adult stem cells, undifferentiated and adaptable, are able to transform into the cells of countless organs and structures within the human body. Many therapies use stem cells as they can restore damaged structures and rejuvenate failing cells very effectively. Stem cell science has seen considerable advancements in the last few years with many new developments and discoveries being made.

Swiss Medica Clinic has developed the Adult Autologous Stem Cell Therapy program to treat a variety of conditions. During stem cell treatment a patient receives 200 – 300 million stem cells. The quantity of restored cells not only covers daily losses, but exceeds them a thousand times. Thus, the reserve of the stem cells, practically lost for the latest 15 – 20 years, is restored. After such an active cell replenishment, organ gets rejuvenated and renewed, because the new and active cells displace the old and damaged ones.

Advantages of Stem Cell Therapy in Swiss Medica clinics:

  1. Side effects and rejection free (use the patient’s very own stem cells from their abdomen)
  2. Avoidance of any allergic and immune reactions (own cells suit chromosomal and genetic structure)
  3. Does not require general anesthesia
  4. No risk of contamination by transmissible diseases
  5. No oncological complications as adult stem cells in comparison to embryonic cells are rather mature
  6. Small quantity of fat tissue is needed (that is why after activation process the stem cells can be at once injected to patient without necessity of growing them on substances. Embryonic stem cells are grown during several months.)
  7. Period of time between getting lipoaspirate and injection of the activated stem cells is only a few hours.
  8. Adipose tissue stem cells are easily accessible and yield up to ten times more stem cells than patient’s bone marrow

Swiss Medica Clinic is use the unique technology of application of autologous photo activated stem cells. The highest standards of treatment and investigative research are upheld at all times.
