There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the patient’s pancreas does not produce the proper amount of insulin to support the blood sugar at a healthy level. With Type 2, the production of insulin is abnormal; therefore the body cells can’t use the hormone to regulate the blood sugar level. Stem cell treatment is categorized into two basic forms. There are those cells that can multiply into many cell copies and give rise to any other type of cell in the body, the second group of cells can multiply to make more copies but they have the capability of yielding only a subsection of cells types.
There is a lot of hope in stem cell treatment as doctors hope to relieve diabetes patient from injecting insulin into their bodies. Stem cell treatment has shown great promise in treating diabetes. During animal trials, the mice which were injected with re-engineered stem cells showed increased levels of insulin production and reduction in the blood sugar levels. One of the most important things that were noted in the tests is that the injected cell (bone marrow stem cells) multiplied in the pancreas making the treatment more effective.
Stem cell treatment is a better way, compared to other methods, since the cells are extracted from the patient’s bone marrow. This greatly helps avoid rejection of new cells by the body. Stem cell treatment is safer since it does not damage the pancreas of a healthy non-diabetic person when injected in the body. Stem cell treatment is a great treatment due to the fact that it does not interfere with the body’s immune system when introduced into the body. This shows that stem cells can actually cure the disease without fail. Further research is however being done in this area in order to enhance the treatment process.
