Stem Cell therapy for Type 1 Diabetes?

Postby Walter » Tue May 31, 2016 5:40 am

I have seen many of my friends who are suffering from type 1 diabetes. I would like to know the latest developments in type 1 diabetes and recently come across stem cell therapy. Is stem cell therapy is a reliable one to cure type 1 diabetes? Has it been successfully treated using this method? IF so can i get more details as to how much this therapy costs, who are the best available doctors and which countries are following this practice.

There are different types of stem cells, each with its importance in diseases treated with stem cells
Stem cells are of two types:
Hematopoietic - blood cell formation responsible for: white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
Mesenchymal - they give birth to other types of cells: cartilage; bone, muscle; interstitial; Grasse; skin, nerve, etc).
Precisely because they differentiate into cells of various kinds, and diseases treated with two different types of stem cells, as follows:
Hematopoietic stem cell treatment is essential in a wide range of about 80 haematological (blood), hereditary and oncological
Mesenchymal stem cells can treat diseases such as cirrhosis, type 1 diabetes, bone fractures, multiple sclerosis, stroke, severe burns, etc.

I think lately in any country can make such transplants at various prices.

One girl I know went to russia to have the treatment and it helped a lot, alhamdulillah.

I have type 1 diabetes too, but I dont think that I will have the treatment, at least for now. Maybe someday when its cheaper and easier, so that I wont have to go to russia
