Cell therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing potential, which is generally higher in younger individuals.
By doctor Pradeep Mahajan
Diabetes is present globally. Of the different types, type 1 and type 2 diabetes are the most common. Type 1 diabetes commonly begins at an early age (juvenile diabetes) and occurs because the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed by the body’s immune system, resulting in high blood sugar, which can only be managed with insulin throughout the life .
Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, develops later in life (commonly after the age of 40), due to insulin resistance. Several harmful factors accumulated in the body over the years interfere with the function of the pancreas to maintain blood glucose levels. Therefore, oral antidiabetic drugs or insulin are recommended for patients.
The type of diabetes does not matter because the patient is ultimately “incarcerated for life” and has no choice but to continue taking medication / insulin, other than compromising the diet.
Regenerative medicine allows for effective long-term control of blood sugar levels by helping the pancreas to heal. The problem in type 1 diabetes is with the body’s wrong immune response to its own cells. Cell therapy corrects this problem through its immunomodulatory property.
In type 2 diabetes, the body produces insulin, which is needed to maintain normal blood glucose levels, but it is not used properly. Cell therapy addresses this dysfunction by detoxifying the body, repairing damaged tissues and reducing the systemic inflammation that has built up over years of unhealthy lifestyle habits. This ultimately leads to more efficient use of insulin and a gradual improvement in symptoms.
Children with type 1 diabetes would be the happiest with this therapy because they won’t have to be stung with the insulin syringe every day. Considering that the source of the stem cells comes mainly from the patient’s body, the question of safety or refusal of treatment by the organism does not arise. Furthermore, the process is minimally invasive; Therefore, it can be performed in patients regardless of their age. In fact, children tend to show better results in a shorter duration because they are in their growing stages.
Cell therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing potential, which is generally higher in younger individuals. Along with better control of blood glucose levels, diabetes complications can also be prevented or delayed because the regenerative capacity of stem cells creates a healthier environment for cells and tissues to function. Of course, lifestyle changes will also be needed to ensure that patients remain diabetes free. A holistic protocol of cell therapy, lifestyle / diet changes and exercise will ensure better control of blood glucose levels and a better quality of life.
