Diabetes and obesity are so intertwined that doctors have started calling it the combined disorders: "diabesity". Type 2 diabetics are obese and often obese people become diabetic.
When your body is invaded by carbs and sugar, it begins to preserve fat. The problem is when the fat becomes excessive, your insulin levels get out of control. Eventually your body can't handle the glucose and fructose that you send it daily, so it sends out more insulin to handle the barrage. Eventually you become insulin resistant. The pancreas can't produce the insulin it needs because it is literally worn out. This is what leads to type 2 diabetes.
Oxidation now begins to happen and forms AGEs or "Advanced Glycation End Products". These AGEs damage our cells and lead to advanced aging, osteoporosis, and other deteriorating diseases.
Many obese people and others suffering from type 2 diabetes are not candidates for Bariatric surgery. For those who understand that the success to recovering from diabetes centers around nutrition, exercise and lifestyle (moderation, modulation and balance) there is another answer.
Cell therapy is widely used in many countries within the field of regenerative medicine, as a first resort not the last. Cell therapy potentially restores function to injured, diseased, and debilitated tissues and organs. This is accomplished by simple injections of stem cells - which "home" to your injured tissues and organs to rejuvenate your own cells. This therapy tends to work best when treating chronic degenerative diseases, non-healing wounds, immune incompetence, virus related tumor therapy, premature aging, and endocrine (glandular) dysfunction.
How well does cell therapy respond to Diabetes? Cell therapy is a powerful tool for controlling the advanced complications of type 2 diabetes with no serious risk or adverse reactions. As the clinical experience of the past four decades has shown, Progenitor Cell treatment can stop the relentless progress of the complications of Diabetes Mellitus once they start. This implies that the transplanted cells of all organs and tissues involved in carbohydrate metabolism produce - directly or indirectly - the missing (endocrine or paracrine) hormones. After the diagnosis of a diabetic complication is established, Stem Cell treatment given early can increase the success rate of the treatment. Statistics prove the effectiveness with various complications of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). The success rate for diabetic nephropathy is approximately 60% and higher among early stage. For diabetic retinopathy the success rate is 65% and higher for early stage. In those with diabetic lower extremity arterial disease the success rate is 65%. Painful severe diabetic Polyneuropathy has a success rate as high as 98%.
Is cell therapy a new treatment? Not at all... for over 70-years cell therapy has been used safely and effectively in Europe, Russia, Republic of China, New Zealand, Middle East, Pacific Rim, Central and South America, Mexico and more recently the United States, under select clinical trials.
Is cell therapy safe? Cell Therapy is a natural product, not a drug and has very little or no adverse side effects. All cellular products are lawfully manufactured, and regulated under strict European Union guidelines.
Will I need immune-suppression drugs? Cell transplants are antigen free, thus no post immuno-suppression drugs are needed when treating diabetics.
What is the procedure for stem cell transplantation? A simple implantation with each cell transplant injected in muscle of the buttocks. Simple as a vitamin B shot. After your initial treatment you go home with a supply of frozen stem cells in vials, which can be administered by a family member or health professional giving you the best long-term results.
