Type 2 Diabetes Stem Cell Therapy

Learn About Type 2 Diabetes & Celltex Stem Cell Therapy

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and is a major issue for individuals across the United States. Learn about how Celltex is helping to improve the quality of life of individuals suffering from Type 2 diabetes by using their own stem cells.

Condition Overview

What Is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes prevents the body from properly producing and using insulin. This is called insulin resistance and causes the pancreas to make an excess of insulin initially to counteract your body’s resistance. Over time, your pancreas is often unable to produce enough insulin to maintain healthy and normal insulin levels. Type 2 diabetes is often treated with lifestyle changes, oral medication and insulin.

Patients with the condition may often experience increased hunger and thirst, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, frequent urination, abnormal weight loss and extreme fatigue.

Insulin is a hormone that transmits glucose from the bloodstream into cells, and our bodies need it to function properly. If insulin levels are monitored and blood sugar is kept within a controlled range, the condition can be combated to allow even the youngest child to live a long and healthy life.

Some groups have a higher risk for developing Type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population.

Stem Cell Therapy Research

How Can Celltex Stem Cell Therapy Help?

According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes in 2015. Of the 30.3 million adults with diabetes, 23.1 million were diagnosed, and 7.2 million were undiagnosed.

Given the immunomodulatory phenotype of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), there is potential (especially in patients with an early diagnosis) that MSCs could help those suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

Transplantation of MSCs in humans for a variety of conditions has been generally well tolerated, although results have been variable as a function of delivery route, and the variability in potency of cells between donors, tissue sources and culture conditions has been well documented.
