Stem Cell Kidney Regeneration
Kidney diseases are a common and even more frequently occurring health condition where the kidney no longer functions as it should. Our adipose(Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for kidney disease are an innovative therapy practiced in the United States that is safe and effective.* Kidney disorders are fairly common and in advanced cases of damage and failure of the organs, transplants are the only known way to cure the condition and there are many health concerns and risks involved with the organ transplant process. That’s why stem cell kidney regeneration is a major goal of current research.
At present, though, there is no known cure for kidney failure. But, that said, stem cell kidney therapy is proving to be promising in early trials and may hold the answer for better treatment or even for a cure, perhaps in the form of complete stem cell kidney regeneration, in the future. Here at the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI), we are proud to be leaders in the development of stem cell kidney disease therapy and renal failure therapy.
The body has two kidneys, which work like filtering units of the body and help clean out toxins.
They are located at the back side of our body towards the lower back regions. They are anatomically made up of tiny structures known as nephrons which are the cellular structures that filter the blood and help flush toxins out of the body through urine. Damage to these nephrons causes the kidneys to not work as well and to be more prone to future failure and an increased level of toxins present within the body, which can cause major problems for organs such as the heart, lungs, brain, stomach, and nervous system. This is why addressing kidney disease and slowing damage to kidney cells and its general progress are so important and why applying stem cell kidney therapy is one of our main areas of focus here at NSI.
Kidney disorders are classified as either acute or chronic. Renal disease considered to be acute is characterized by temporary loss of kidney functions, usually due to illness, injury, or a side effect of medications or other medical procedures. Chronic kidney diseases are those illnesses that affect the kidneys for more than 3 months, worsen over time, and usually progress slowly.
The disease as a whole, whether acute or chronic, is often asymptomatic, meaning there are few warning signs early on- in fact, most kidney issues are caught during normal lab testing of blood or urine samples. The underlying causes of kidney disease usually are related to unusual immune conditions, urinary tract infections, infections or inflammation, environmental toxins, exposure to pollution, congenital birth defects, side effects of medications, or the overuse of certain potent drugs and medication.
NSI aims to address each of these issues through renal failure therapy with stem cells.
How Stem Cell Kidney Therapy Can Address Damage
New focus on addressing the symptoms of kidney disease and stem cell therapy advances are the focus of our team of experts here at NSI. Though there is no cure for kidney failure and advanced kidney disease, there are promising results already seen when applying stem cell kidney disease therapy.
Stem cells are the naive cells of the body, which can be differentiated into many cells upon proper activation. This means stem cell kidney regeneration should be possible; a group of stem cells taken from fatty deposits in the body could be activated and used to regrow kidney cells and tissue to improve healing and overall health of the kidneys after chronic or acute kidney disease has taken its toll.
Although a lot of research is still needed and being conducted, stem cells are showing that they can help to stop the progression and improve healing from the disease. In time, it may be possible to use stem cell kidney therapy to stop the disease and even reverse the damage to the point that a cure could be developed and full kidney regeneration accomplished.
Step 1- Qualification For Stem Cell Kidney Therapy
Many case studies and trials are being conducted across the country to better understand how renal failure therapy with stem cells improves kidney health and how they can be used to fight renal diseases. Here at NSI Stem Cell Centers, we have helped patients with a variety of types and stages of kidney disease discover a better quality of life!
The first step to finding out if stem cell kidney disease therapy is an option for your unique case is to meet with one of our medical experts to address your overall health and to review your health history and family background with you. Once your consultation appointment has been completed, and you are approved for the procedure, the second step of addressing your conditions through stem cell kidney therapy begins.
Our adipose(Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for kidney disease are an innovative therapy that can help them feel better and enjoy life more.
Step 2- Source Extraction
Stem cells occur naturally throughout the body but can be found in greater concentrations in certain ‘staging areas’ in the human body. The most common source for harvesting stem cells is the fatty tissue layer that lies just beneath the skin. This layer is known medically as adipose tissue, and is an exceptionally rich source of these powerful cells.
The cells are harvested and concentrated into a slurry. Depending on the patient’s unique condition, sometimes platelet-rich plasma therapy may be included. The highly concentrated stem cells are then injected into the targeted area to deliver a power punch of healing, replicating cells that then go to work repairing damaged cells and tissues.
In the case of stem cell kidney therapy, this means repairing damage to the various structures and cellular bodies that help the kidney function and do its job.
Step 3- Stem Cell Implantation and Healing
Once stem cells are ready to be injected back into the body, there are two main methods for delivery into the body:
Intravenous Injection – The stem cell slurry is injected into the veins near the target location so the blood flow can carry the stem cells to the correct area.
Recovery after stem cell kidney therapy is usually very promising and the outlook positive. People usually see results within a day or two in regards to lessening pain and a decrease in severity of major symptoms. As needed, patients are sometimes advised to return to NSI for related additional services such as physical therapy, psychological evaluations, and additional renal failure therapy and assistance.
Some patients will need follow-up therapies and most will need several injections of stem cells in order to see full healing potential achieved.
Long-term, it is not known whether repeat series of stem cell kidney disease therapy are beneficial in prolonging results or for improving them even more. But additional studies are being done, and with more research and study, we can begin to understand how using stem cell kidney therapy repairs damage, stimulates even more improvement, and impacts more lives.
The NSI Stem Cell Center is committed to kidney disease and stem cell therapies and is proud to be leading the way in this new and exciting field of stem cell research.
Unlocking the Potential of Stem Cell Kidney Therapy
While there is no known cure for kidney failure, much research has been done and now we understand that improved kidney disease treatment and stem cell therapies go hand in hand. Here at NSI we are working to unlock the secrets that stem cells hold and to discover the answer for better therapies or even for a cure in the future, possibly in the form of stem cell kidney regeneration. We are proud to be leaders in the development of stem cell kidney disease therapy.
