What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, occurs when your peripheral nervous system is damaged. This is commonly a result of having diabetes. In this case, it is referred to as diabetic neuropathy. However, neuropathy can also result from injuries, infections, and exposure to various toxic substances. Among others, symptoms may include pain, numbness, and weakness.
Using stem cell treatment for neuropathy has shown promise in treating the disorder and relieving pain. It was discovered that MSC treatment reverses the manifestation of diabetic neuropathy. This may be due to the important role MSCs play in repairing tissue and lowering blood glucose levels. The role MSCs take in regeneration may show promise for other forms of peripheral neuropathy as well.
About Diabetic Neuropathy
Nearly 20 million people in the United States suffer from these afflictions. In fact, around 60-70% of diabetics are diagnosed. DN can affect the autonomic nerves, the motor nerves, and the sensory nerves.
DN is nerve damage that can occur in people with diabetes. Different types of nerve damage cause different symptoms. Symptoms may include pain and numbness in your feet. Additionally, sufferers may notice problems with the functions of internal organs. Over time, high blood glucose levels and high levels of fats in the blood can damage your nerves. Consequently, symptoms depend on the type and severity you are suffering from.
Diabetic Neuropathy has no known cure. DN is the main cause of foot problems and ulcers in people with diabetes. High blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessel walls that supply oxygen and nutrients to the nerves. This can affect the hands, feet, eyes, kidneys, and heart. As a result, the loss of sensation further increases the risk of damage.
Stem Cell Treatment for Neuropathy
Traditionally, treatments include RX antidepressants, opioid painkillers, and anti-seizure meds. Additionally, splinting of the limbs may be necessary. At best, these include slowing the progression of the disease, relieving pain, managing complications, and restoring function.
In other words, these are temporary improvements. Band-aids. Consequently, they offer little if any long term improvements. In other words, you must learn to live with and suffer through the pain with little hope for pain relief.
Up to this point, should your pain not respond to normal treatments, invasive surgery is traditionally required. However, stem cell treatment for neuropathy may be the permanent solution you’ve been looking for.
MSCs secrete neurotrophic factors, angiogenic factors, cytokines, and immunomodulatory substances. Consequently, doing so improves symptoms or slow progression of diabetic neuropathy.
