Stem Cell Therapy For Diabetes Mellitus
A friend got stem cell treatment done for diabetes and kidneys. Stem cells were derived from bone marrow. Will it help to control sugar. thanks?
Application of cellular therapy to replace or repair diseased or injured cells. The "stem cell" would have the capacity to "grow up" and result in new healthy tissue or organ. The most common application would be blood stem cells for patients with leukemia, lymphoma, or other blood cancers, but increasingly stem cells are being looked at to treat arthritic, ...Read more
Stem cell therapy: It involves the use of stem or pluripotent cells that, under the proper triggers, can grow into many different cell types. Stem cells are transplanted to replace damaged cells or tissues in the body that are unable to heal themselves. While this type of therapy does offer hope, it is mostly investigational at this time and very few stem cell therapies have been proven to be both safe and effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Safety -yes: There is abundant evidence from Phase I Clinical trials that adult stem cell therapy is safe. It is the purpose of Phase I trials to establish safety. Other phases (II, III and post III) established efficacy and dosage response levels. Hundreds of Phase I trials have been conducted for various indications. This is an excited area of medicine! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
IV and targeted: Adult stem cells are being studied for IV use and for guided injection therapy into areas of disease or degeneration. Most important cell group appears to be the mesenchymal stem-stromal cells which are multipotent (several tissues). Trend is to use fat tissue as source since it has highest numbers of these types of cells. Amazing reports are growing that they have great therapeutic potentials. ...Read more
Absolutely: For a variety of conditions this has been life-saving. It is not without risks and some patients have been failures, but overall it has been an amazing addition to physician's armamentarium. ...Read more

Experimental: Hi. Stem cell therapy holds tremendous promise that only has a chance of being realized when anti-science ignoramuses (GOP, right wingers) are kept OUT of power. There is no approved stem cell therapy for knee problems, but if you WANT to see stem cell potential, keep idiots OUT of positions of power with your VOTE!!! Stem cells rock, and science has only scratched the surface! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unclear: Stem cell therapy is now being used in an experimental approach for severe COPD in an effort to regenerate lung tissue. There haven't been enough cases or time to know if this approach can be benefical. While theoretically appealing, results need to be assessed before it can be recommended. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
In clinical trial: Use of adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently in clinical trial in us/internationally. Trend is toward use of fat derived mscs, havested by liposuction, isolated and concentrated in tissue culture. Early reports suggest significant improvement in neurological, autoimmune and organ functions. Many more mscs in fat than bone marrow making ad-msc the center of most research now. ...Read more
Still being studied.: Seems like nowadays they are looking into stem cell therapies to cure just about everything; and hopefully one day they just might. I know there has been some press on the subject; but i believe clinical trials are still being conducted. I'll throw this out to my fellow 'tappers' for their input. Happy holidays! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually...: As long as it is an approved treatment for the disease. There may be some restrictions, for example if you have multiple myeloma but your kidney function is impaired beyond a certain point you will be denied coverage by medicare. If kidney function was normal the same person would be approved. ...Read more
Only in research: We are in the infancy of this approach, but a few medical centers are looking at this and if interested, contact a nearby medical school or the national institutes of health. ...Read more
No: It is a diseased dilated branchial tree unable to drain the secretions, stem cells will not reverse the process. ...Read more
Dentists: How has stem cell therapy and PRP helped patients in your general or specialty practice and for which procedures?
Stem cells and PRP: The stem cells based therapies could help in treating damaged teeth (cementum, periodontal ligament fibers, and dental pulp), bone regeneration and also treating nerve injuries. PRP is used already in dental surgery (soft tissues, bone tissue and TMJ). More research is needed, but the results so far are promising. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not available yet: Mainstream medicine is looking at this, and there are promising leads, but it's also being offered by charlatans. When it fails, they'll still have your money and will blame you on some pretext. Here's an update from a legitimate source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/271898.php For now, why not get a baseball cap or shave your head and build muscle? Nothing looks better for a man. ...Read more
