The most common form of diabetes, type 2 diabetes is a chronic illness that is characterized by high blood sugar levels. It is caused by the problematic way in which your body uses or produces insulin. Insulin is necessary in transporting blood sugar, or glucose, to cells where it can be stored for later energy use.
Type 2 diabetes causes the body to become resistant to insulin. Cells do not respond to it and are deprived of blood sugar. Instead the sugar volume in the blood builds up, which is called hyperglycemia. The pancreas may increase insulin production but it does not rectify the problem.
Causes of type 2 diabetes are being very overweight with excess body weight around the waist, poor diet and a low activity level. Genetics and family history can be an indication of increased risk. Other diabetes risk factors include old age, high blood pressure, history of gestational diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, impaired glucose intolerance and ethnicity, as African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans present high diabetes incidences.
Diabetes symptoms are not always present but they can include blurred vision, fatigue, increased appetite, thirst and urination, slow-healing or frequent infections and erectile dysfunction.
Type 2 Diabetes can be Treated with New Stem Cell Therapy
Adult stem cells, undifferentiated and adaptable, are able to change into the cells of countless organs and structures within the human body. Many therapies use stem cells as they can restore damaged structures and rejuvenate failing cells very effectively. They do this through cell division, a process in which they multiply indefinitely. Stem cell science has seen considerable advancements in the last few years with many new developments and discoveries being made.
Angeles Hospital’s Stem Cell Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes
Angeles Health developed the Adult Autologous Stem Cell (A-ASC) Therapy program to care for a variety of patients, including those who have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes patients are treated using autologous adult stem cells, which are harvested from the patient. There is very little possibility of a patient’s body rejecting the cells because of this.
Angeles hospital employs stem cells that come from the patient’s own bone marrow and adipose tissue, or fat. As adipose tissue extraction is more efficient than bone marrow extraction, the tissue yields up to ten times more stem cells, it is more commonly applied in stem cell therapy. Bone marrow extraction is also a more complex procedure to carry out generally.
Organs and tissues can be addressed directly with the specialized catheterization procedure. It is non-invasive and thus undemanding of the patient. Stem cells can be delivered throughout the body, there is no need for anesthesia and it can be executed in less than an hour.
Angeles Health International is a Center of Excellence that offers type 2 diabetes patients the most innovative and high quality treatment. Collaborative medical practitioners encourage and define best practice by learning together, measuring their outcomes and establishing effective treatment protocols. The Center of Excellence operates with licensed medical experts who adhere to formally appointed bodies of expertise. The highest standards of treatment and investigative research are thus preserved.
