The primary function of the kidney is to remove excess water and waste from the body. Acute kidney failure occurs when the kidneys are suddenly unable to remove waste and concentrate urine without the loss of electrolytes. Chronic kidney failure is the gradual loss of kidney function over time.
The causes of kidney damage can include acute tubular necrosis, a kidney disorder, autoimmune kidney diseases, extremely low blood pressure, clotting disorders of the blood vessels in the kidneys, certain infections that affect the kidney including septicemia, pregnancy complications and urinary tract obstruction.
There are many possible kidney failure symptoms: bloody stools, bruising easily, bad breath, mood changes, reduced appetite, fatigue, hand tremors, decreased sensation, flank pain, high blood pressure, nosebleeds, nausea, vomiting, metallic taste in the mouth, seizures, fluid retention, bleeding longer than usual, persistent hiccups and urination changes.
New Stem Cell Therapy to Treat Kidney Failure
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated and can morph into the cells of countless tissues, organs and structures within our bodies. Used in many treatments, they restore damaged fibers and rejuvenate impaired cells through cell division, a process in which they multiply indefinitely. Stem cell science has seen much progress in recent years with many new discoveries being made.
Stem Cell Therapy at Angeles Hospital in Mexico
Angeles Health’s Stem Cell Therapy program can be applied to a variety of conditions including kidney failure. Like many other procedures treatment for kidney failure uses autologous adult stem cells. These are harnessed from the kidney failure patient themselves so there is very little chance of a patient’s body rejecting them.
Stem cells are taken from the patient’s bone marrow and adipose tissue, or fat. Adipose tissue extraction tends to be more worthwhile than bone marrow extraction, due to the tissue producing up to ten times more stem cells. It is therefore much more widely used. It is also a much easier process to carry out.
The therapeutic endovascular placement of adipose-derived stem cells that makes up the Stem Cell Therapy treatment program at Hospital Angeles enables organs and structures to be targeted directly.
The specialized non-invasive catheterization process is manageable for the patient. Stem cells can be easily distributed around the body, there is no need for an anesthetic and the procedure is over in less than an hour.
