Stem Cell treatment in Diabetes

Stem cells treatments in Diabetes are being used for on-going research to help us explore the complicated ways in which our bodies process sugar and answer some important questions about the root causes of diabetes, such as:

  • In type 1 of diabetes, why does the immune system begin to attack beta cells and no other cells in the pancreas or in other organs or tissues?
  • In type 2 of diabetes, what causes the resistance to insulin?

Recently, there has been great progress in group of betacells from embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells. Laboratory studies help us better understand disease development, what is the potential of genetic causes may be, and similarities and differences between patients. Researchers are using this information for diagnosing people earlier, to stop disease progression and more effectively treatments of diabetes.
