Stem Cell Therapy For Kidney Disease
Kidney diseases are a common and even more frequently occurring health condition where the kidney no longer functions as it should. 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. There is no known cure for kidney failure but kidney disease and stem cell treatments are proving to be promising in early trials and may hold the answer for better treatments or even for a cure in the future. Here at NSI Stem Cell Centers we are proud to be leaders in the development of stem cell application for kidney disease treatments.
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 treating kidney disease and slowing its progress is so important and why treating kidney damage with stem cells 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 and worsens over time and usually progresses 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.
Using Stem Cells for Kidney Treatments
New focus on treating kidney disease and stem cell treatment 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 is promising results already seen when treating kidney damage with stem cells. Stem cells are the naive cells of the body, which can be differentiated into many cells upon proper activation. This means 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 if 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 cells to stop the disease and even reverse the damage to the point that a cure could be developed.
Step 1- Qualification For The Treatment
Many case studies and trials are being conducted across the country to better understand how stem cells improve 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 cells are a possible treatment 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 the process then begins and step two of treating kidney damage with stem cells can begin. Many of our patients have found that fighting kidney disease and stem cell treatment application can indeed 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 course for harvesting stem cells include bone marrow, fat cells, and spinal fluid. The cells are harvested and concentrated into a slurry- sometimes additional blood and plasma, platelets can be added to the slurry to improve its potency. This is 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. For kidney patients, 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 through the veins near the target location so the blood flow can carry the stem cells to the correct area.
Intra-Arterial Injection – The infusion of stem cells is administered through the use of a catheter directly into the renal artery for faster and wider spread delivery.
Post treatment recovery 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. Most patients are asked to visit the doctors for additional services such as physical therapy, psychological evaluations, and additional therapy and assistance. Some patients will need follow-up treatments 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 treatments are beneficial for prolonging results are improving them even more, but additional studies are being done and with more research and study, we can begin to understand how treating kidney damage with stem cells can improve even more and impact even more lives. The NSI Stem Cell Center is committed to kidney disease and stem cell treatments and are proud to be leading the way in this new and exciting field of stem cell research.
Stem Cells and Kidney Health
While there is no known cure for kidney failure, much research has been done and now we understand that kidney disease and stem cell treatments 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 treatments or even for a cure in the future. We are proud to be leaders in the development of stem cell application for kidney disease treatments. To learn more about treating kidney damage with stem cells, call and set up your consultation appointment with us and see if stem cells are the answer to your kidney disease issues and can give you back the quality of life you want!
