Healing Diabetes with Stem Cells
Diabetes refers a group of diseases chiefly characterized by abnormally high levels of the sugar glucose in the bloodstream. The excessive glucose is actually responsible for most of the complications of diabetes, which include heart disease, stroke, nerve damage (neuropathy), eye damage (retinopathy) that can culminate in blindness, kidney failure and amputations. There are two (2) principle forms of the disease: Type 1 AKA juvenile-onset diabetes that typically affects children and young adults. And type 2 called adult-onset diabetes which generally affects older, sedentary, and overweight persons with a family history of the condition.
Type I diabetes arises when the body’s immune system sees its own insulin-producing islet cells as foreign and attacks and destroys them. In the absence of insulin, glucose cannot enter cells normally and winds up accumulating in the blood.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body cannot use insulin effectively (A condition referred to in medical parlance as “insulin resistance”). The end result is the same as with type 1 diabetes—namely, a build-up of glucose in the blood and the very real potential for tissue and organ damage.
Standard Treatment for Diabetes
The standard medical treatment for type 1 diabetes is insulin injections several times a day for life with careful monitoring of blood glucose concentrations. The monitoring aspect is vital as sufferers who keep their blood glucose level as close to normal as possible can significantly reduce the long term complications of diabetes, such as retinopathy and heart disease. Folks saddled with type 2 diabetes can often control their blood glucose level through a combination of diet, exercise, and specific oral medications. Unfortunately Type 2 diabetes can and often does progress to the point where only insulin therapy is sufficient to control blood glucose levels.
Alternative Treatments for Diabetes
Thankfully there are a number of scientific promising treatments for diabetic complications as well as diabetes itself. For instance, there is evidence that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can benefit diabetic neuropathy; especially if used as part of a comprehensive care program that includes such things as nutrition & fitness counseling, use of natural compounds and botanic medicines that have been shown to modulate blood glucose concentration, and external Counterpulsation therapy which helps open up arteries that have become partially or completely blocked due to the adverse effects of diabetes on blood vessel. This powerful comprehensive therapeutic approach is exactly what pioneering physician Dr. Steenblock offers at his clinic.
Unfortunately, by the time most diabetic people reach Dr. Steenblock they typically have been wrestling with it as well as other chronic health problems for some time. Many take a number of drugs, some of which actually deplete compounds that are integral to blood sugar regulation and have side-effects that can actually damage blood vessels and other tissues.
With this in mind, Dr. Steenblock approaches his diabetic patients with a number of goals in mind:
