Stem Cells and Diabetes
Whether you have been told you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes mellitus, the diagnosis is understandably disturbing. Many people remember when very little could be done for those who had to live with this metabolic condition. But today, stem cell diabetes therapy is restoring quality of life to many who live with the disease, helping them reduce dependency on medication, and in some cases even reversing the damage and symptoms of diabetes.

When the pancreas is functioning normally, it secretes low amounts of insulin after a meal is eaten. The insulin-producing process is crucial for transporting certain nutrients into the body’s cells, including the proper regulation and absorption of glucose (sugar).
One of the primary distinctions between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is that, in Type 2, the regulation and absorption of glucose is disrupted. Instead of the glucose being absorbed into the cells, where it is converted into energy, the sugar builds up in the bloodstream.
Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can be genetic. But developing Type 2 due to unhealthy habits in nutrition and activity levels is a very common factor. Regardless of the reasons for developing Type 2 diabetes, it is a progressive disease that must be managed throughout life.
Diabetes is a disease of the pancreas, which secretes the vital hormone insulin. Type 2 diabetes is much more common than Type 1. The distinction is important.
Type 1 diabetes was historically known as “juvenile diabetes.” That’s because Type 1 is generally a condition that a person develops very early in life. Type 1 can be considered an autoimmune condition since the immune system mistakenly attacks insulin–producing cells within the pancreas.
Type 2 diabetes was once called “adult-onset diabetes” since Type 2 can develop later in life. While it can begin prior to age forty, over ninety percent of people who develop Type 2 diabetes do so at forty years of age or later. Type 2 is a result of the body developing a resistance to insulin or when the pancreas quits making sufficient quantities of insulin.
Whether caused by type 1 or type 2 diabetes, the disruption of the insulin-producing process and flow significantly affects the health of those who suffer from diabetes.
Drugs focus on symptoms instead of effective diabetes repair.
Did you know that relying solely on medication for controlling your blood sugar can put you at risk for developing and suffering even more complications? This is because diabetes is a complex metabolic disease that involves many systems in the body beyond just the insulin-producing function of the pancreas. High glucose and A1c levels are simply the symptoms of the diabetic condition. Depending on medication alone can leave you with liver, thyroid, adrenal, and GI dysfunction.
Stem cell diabetes type 2 therapy has been reported to help reduce dependency on medications by better regulating blood glucose levels. Stem cell therapy is a Type 2 diabetes breakthrough that applies modern regenerative medical methods at the cellular level, stimulating tissue rejuvenation and diabetes repair without the risks of outside medications.
Those living with Diabetes can experience a wide range of symptoms:
- Increased Hunger and Thirst
- Frequent Urination
- Weakness and Fatigue
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Blurred Vision
- Painful Foot Ulcers
Long-term complications may include:
- Heart Attack and Stroke
- Kidney Failure
- Painful Neuropathies
- Loss of Limbs
- Eye Problems
- Energy and Memory Loss
More About Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes
Stem cells circulate through the bloodstream our whole life long. They are “packets of potential” whose primary function is to flow to any area in need of repair and regeneration. It doesn’t matter whether the damage has been done by disease, disorder, or injury, the main role of stem cells is to rebuild tissue, make repairs, and restore health to the affected area, organ, or tissue.
How This Type 1 And Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough Works
While stem cells can be found all through the body, they are stored in particular abundance in certain areas of the body: such as bone marrow or the fatty layer that lies just beneath the skin. By harvesting stem cells where they exist and applying them where needed, they integrate and begin functioning according to the needs of diseased or damaged area. This means that any disease that involves tissue degeneration can be effectively addressed with stem cells. Even diabetes!

Repair & Regeneration
The primary function of stem cell therapy for diabetes is to repair and regenerate damaged tissue such as that caused to nerves, blood vessels, and even the kidneys and pancreas. Studies have shown improved glucose regulation and even improved kidney function following stem cell therapy for diabetes type 2 as well as type 1.
Stem cell therapy for diabetes can also provide anti-inflammatory benefits throughout the body. Inflammation is a direct contributor to all chronic illness and directly damages our cardiovascular system. This can lead to diabetes-related heart disease, among many other things.
Stem cell therapy for diabetes helps regulate the immune system, which in many diabetics can contribute to the inability to control glucose. People who suffer from diabetes are much more susceptible to infections for this reason.
Many successful patients require insulin injections less often, maintain better glycemic control, and experience increased energy levels. It is important to keep in mind that each patient is unique, so the length and the extent of stem cell therapy for diabetes for each individual must be determined on a case-by-case basis.
“My blood sugars were way up in the 300s. I was taking 30 units of Lantus at night, and up to 10 units of Humalog during the day with each meal. I’m down to zero units of Lantus at night, and my Humalog has decreased considerably.
My blood sugar this morning was 97. I did not have Lantus last night. I’m enjoying my new freedom from shots!”*
“I’ve had no pain, and before that I’ve had six back surgeries, a triple bypass, and diabetes really bad. I feel like I’m 27, and I’m 56. I’ve told at least 150 people, and if someone is seeing this and you’re diabetic, this is the place you need to come. This has really blown me out of the water. I’m a totally different person.”*
“My sugar levels in the morning were somewhere between 229 and 289. It was getting out of control for me. I thought I would be able to manage it myself. If you’re in a position like this, and you may be considering it, don’t wait to do it. You want to do it. It saved my life.”*
“I was tired all the time. I had no energy. I’m 5 1/2 weeks into the treatment and I feel marvelous. Every morning I get up and I just can’t believe that my blood sugar is somewhere between 95 and 110.”*
“I was a little skeptical at first because nothing ever worked. I didn’t want to do chemicals or pills. All the pills I was on made me loopy. When I came here my A1c for my diabetes was 10, and I wasn’t happy. My doctor wasn’t happy. So I said let’s do this thing [stem cell]. Recently I’ve been at 6.2. It was never 6.2!”*
The symptoms of diabetes result from the failure to regulate sugars.
To better understand how stem cell therapy for diabetes can help ease diabetic symptoms and can lessen your need for insulin injections, it is important to understand how and why these symptoms occur.
During digestion, food is broken down into proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are then turned into glucose, which is the body’s main source of fuel. For glucose to properly transfer into the bloodstream and produce energy for the body, cells of the pancreas must provide healthy amounts of insulin and the receptors on our cells must be able to recognize that insulin.
In Type 1 diabetes there are no insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. In Type 2 diabetes the receptors are worn out and at the end stage, the pancreas does not produce insulin. Therefore, glucose builds up in the blood and wreaks havoc on the body causing damage to delicate tissues leading to complications.
After stem cell therapy for diabetes, patients experience drops in their blood sugar levels and improvements in their diabetic symptoms.* Insulin requirements drop, as well as the need for other medications. There are new blood vessels and vascular growth factors, the immune system is strengthened, and there is an increase in pancreatic transcription factors.
Our stem cell therapies are an innovative method of dealing with illness and disease and are recommended for a wide variety of conditions. Yet, many people are just learning about it now for the first time. These are not embryonic stem cells or cells from fetuses. These regenerative cells come straight from your own body just a few hours before they’re injected back into your body and put to work to heal disease or dysfunction.
