Stem Cell Treatment For Diabetes
Diabetes is an Autoimmune medical condition subtly affecting our health. Since symptoms of frequent urination and greater thirst do not seem to be dangerous; diabetes is highly ignored in the initial stage. And the gravity of the situation is realized only in advanced stages.
Diabetes is mainly classified into type I and type 2. Type 1 develops when the body's immune system sees its own cells as foreign and destroys them. As a result, insulin producing islets cells of the pancreas are lost and thus insulin production is stopped. In the absence of insulin, glucose intake by cells is impaired and it gets accumulated in the blood stream. In type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance is developed due to which cells are unable to utilize insulin for glucose metabolism. Diabetes when uncontrolled can lead to blindness, kidney failure, heart diseases and stroke. Therefore it is very necessary to keep excessive high level of glucose in the blood stream under check.
Conventionally, there is no permanent diabetes cure except for medications and insulin injections. However,Stem cells technology has practically fulfilled the promise of dead cell replacements with the new one. With this unique transdifferentiation ability of stem cells, it is possible to develop insulin producing beta cells that are lost from the body.
Major Manifestations of Diabetes in patients include the following:
Always tired, thirsty, hungry
Numb or tingling hands or feet
Sudden weight loss
Wounds that won't heal
So,it is important to take char Continue reading
