Diabetes is common disease, There are two causes for people to have type 2 diabetes. In the body, insulin is used to transmit the blood sugar to cells for fuel and keep the blood sugar in a normal range. However, in the people with type 2 diabetes, their pancreas cannot secret enough insulin for the body need. In addition, too many fat cells in their body reduce the sensitivity to insulin. So the blood sugar cannot be used by cells but stay in the blood vessels to destroy organs. Thereby there are many complications of diabetes.
However, current treatments of Diabetes including insulin injection (side effects of insulin) and hypoglycemic drugs only can relive the symptoms, but can not stop its progression at all.
Stem Cell Therapy makes up the inadequacy of current treatment modalities and brings new hope to the patients with Diabetes worldwide.
Stem cells are a class of undifferentiated cells with multi-differentiation and regeneration potentials. In treating Diabetes, stem cells can differentiate into new islet β cells. Hence, the pancreas islet will recover secretion function.
In Shijiazhuang Kidney disease hospital, more than 1000 patients have received Stem Cell Treatment. Approximately 85% of patients show clinical significant improvement after treatment. These patients who reacted to the treatment could gradually decrease their insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs or even stop taking them.
