Stem Cells May Help Blood Sugar, Pancreas in Type 2s | Diabetes News Hound | January 13, 2010

Researchers in Australia say they have used stem cells to effectively treat Type 2 diabetes in mice, according to an article in Adelaide Now.

The researchers injected 35 diabetic mice with human adult stem cells and found that the mice experienced reduced blood sugar levels for the following three weeks. The injection also helped repair the mice’s damaged pancreases.

While the research is currently in the pre-clinical trial stage, researchers say that similar injections would dramatically improve the lives of people living with Type 2 diabetes. Researchers say that such a treatment could involve one injection every six to eight months.

Clinical trials are expected to begin within the year. Researchers say the treatment could be available within three years.

Many doctors will not give you much encouragement, what do you do where do you go. The field of stem cells is the future for nerve regeneration and spinal cord injuries.
    A brilliant scientist working with a botanical extract for the past fifteen years has some great news for you. If you are anyone you know is dealing with nerve damage or any other disease or condition stem cells are the answer. Christian Drapeau released a book in mid December 09 it went right to the best sellers list “Cracking the Stem Cell Code” http://twurl.nl/hrn45p
