Diabetes is a metabolic condition that affects the entire body. Classified into two types, Type 1 develops when the body loses the ability to make and use the hormone, insulin, in the proper way. Usually diagnosed in children and young adults, only 10% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. In Type 2, the body doesn’t know how to use insulin properly. Normally the pancreas releases insulin.

When the body doesn’t respond appropriately to insulin, a condition called “insulin resistance” occurs. Traditional treatment methods include insulin injections and oral medications to control glucose levels. Diet change is also required. Increased blood glucose levels lead to a multitude of complications affecting the whole body to include:

  • Stroke – up to four times as likely
  • Blindness – diabetes is a leading cause of blindness
  • Heart attack – three times as likely, and heart disease is up to four times as likely
  • Amputation – diabetes is a leading cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations
  • Total kidney failure – up to three times as likely

Diabetes affects approximately 400 million people throughout the world and is a lifelong disease. Complex and expensive daily regimens of medications are often required to stay healthy and reduce complications of the disease. Stem cell therapy usually reduces daily maintenance medications and sometimes eliminates them; therefore, stem cell therapy should be considered as a treatment option.

THE TREATMENT SHOULD IMPROVE SYMPTOMS AND PROVIDE:

  • Improved blood glucose levels
  • Decreased HbA1C levels
  • Reduction in the need for Insulin
  • Improved metabolism
  • Better sleep
