Common Questions and Answers about Type 1 diabetes cure with stem cell

diabetes

Avatar n tn I wonder how many of you who were diagnosed before the age of 1 have been checked for Neonatal Diabetes? My son was diagnosed at the age of 4 months with Type 1 diabetes but we later found out he had Neonatal Diabetes caused by a genetic mutation of the KCNJ11 gene.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 13 in 1993. I had my first child at age 23 and my second child 23 months later. I used Cord Blood Registry with both of my deliveries and even though it is not 100% that I can ever use it to help cure my diabetes I feel so much better having done it.
Avatar n tn Then I find out about a possible cure with stem cell surgery using your own cells in the next few years, but would it be too late for me? Would all my beta cells be gone by then?? I'm constantly in mood swings, I'll be hopeful then depressed. I seem to have better control over my glucose levels when I'm very busy, but I don't know how to be fully happy again. Not sure which life was better, my old, sick life or this trapped healthier one..
Avatar n tn Well two months later she was back in the hospital with type 1 diabetes. So please don't think that chemotherapy is a cure, it can cause it! I know that my daughter has this disese because my father had it and that if she would have never gotten Leukemia that she would more than likely have gotten Diabetes later down the road, maybe at 8 to 10 years of age.
Avatar n tn I would hope that you think of JDRF for this, but any effort that you make with any Type 1 Charity who is involved with research would be great. I look forward to hearing back from you and wish the best for you and your child. Cure, sonner than later is my motto. (Stolen from a fellow volunteer) From one parent to another and a great thank you for your question.
Avatar m tn //www.autismvox.com/another-autism-treatment-stem-cell-therapy/ The above link talked stem cell therapy and also cited how one child responded to it. http://www.autismvox.com/another-autism-treatment-stem-cell-therapy/ That above link (mentions other diseases treated by stem cell therapy, including diabetes and autoimmune disorders, both of which I have) http://www.translational-medicine.
Avatar m tn This research paper explains more about why some people handle the virus and others don't and most important why viral load means nothen. With cell to cell transfer there is no way that TX is going to work. I suggest you all read this. It explains why the virus moves so slow in most and can replicate so fast in others. As I always thought and the numbers bear me out, you are more likely to die with the virus than because of it.
Avatar n tn I'm a 4th year medical student in Hong Kong. I experienced ther classical symptoms of diabetes 6 months ago and raised the suspicion of DM, then it was confirmed. I have been so upset with the diagnosis, crying all day long for the first few days. I still can't help crying for long when I'm alone at this moment. My life has been so smooth, I had good academic result, got a boyfriend who is working as a doctor, it has been perfect...
Avatar f tn As a P.S. to my posting above, yes, it interesting that we both had the exact same stroke. It only occurs in 5% of the total strokes. But we are both very fortunate because the recurrence of eschemic strokes which we had is about 25%, but with the dissection type, we only have a "1 percent risk of recurrence per year over the next 10 years.
Avatar n tn I understand that they have come a long way since the 1960's and that there are many different species, but I need help finding some type of solution for my husband, I beleive that stem cells can help. I've read about Beijing Puhua International Stem Cell Treatment Center, reading about it gives me hope. There are success stories about people with traumatic brain injuries. I need expert advice.
12832842 tn?1448732401 Try thinking of MS as being more like 'type 1 diabetes', type 1 diabetes is for life and they didn't do anything to cause it to be in their life but it's still their reality. The insulin injections help control the disease but there are many other elements they still need to be aware of to stay on top of their diabetes..... Q:Is there such a format? A: Unfortunately no Q: I'm thinking that's what the infusions are.
Avatar n tn com/type1/petition.html Its a petition I composed to help find a cure for diabetes, and to support funding for stem cell research! Being a Type 1 diabetic this is an issue that is very close to my heart and is something I am very passionate about. If you do not agree with the matter or research then of course you do not have to sign or pass this along, but if you do agree and can find it in you hearts to sign and/or pass it along then thank you.
Avatar m tn Last year in January, I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes and was put on Byetta, I had constant nausea and could not even keep a glass of water down. I have now been on Victoza a week now and it seems to be a much better medication than Byetta. When I first started taking this, the nausea only lasted about 2 days and I haven't had any since and it has really cut my appetite, in fact, at times I find that I am not eating enough and I have to make myself eat a little more.
Avatar n tn can anyone explain how islet cell transplantation will hopefully cure type 1 diabetes, how the odds are currently and in the future to cure a reciepient and the side effects of the transplant? I am saving the cord bloodstem cells from my unborn son, due in 5 weeks, with the hope that one day it will hold the cure for my 4 yr old daughter. Thanks for your input all.
Avatar n tn Had no problems getting hard off porn but when it came to sex with a woman I would go limp after a few minutes. 1. Masturbating to porn everyday for several years is part of the problem. 2. Like Iwasneverhere said , Its not just watching porn its HOW you masturbate. The grip of your fingers wrapped tight is much more intense then having a condom on and sliding in and out a nice soft Vagina. Over years of masturbation I became acustom to my hands and the Soft vagina just wasnt doing it for me.
203342 tn?1328740807 I have a lot of cancer in my family too, an aunt with breast cancer in both breasts, grandmother with colon cancer, grandfather with lung cancer (although he smoked). I also have a lot of diabetes in my family. I'm really the only one who didn't get that. My friend with Celiac said there's a connection between diabetics having Celiac. My mom said that she's always had gastric or digestive problems and she'd get that checked out. I really didn't think this mass was cancerous.
Avatar f tn her findings, which raise the possibility that an inexpensive, readily available drug might effectively treat Type 1 or juvenile diabetes, challenge widespread assumptions. Many diabetes researchers insist that a cure lies instead in research on stem cells and islet cell transplants. Dr. Faustman's story, scientists say, illustrates the difficulties that creative scientists can have when their work questions conventional wisdom and runs into entrenched interests.
Avatar m tn Of course, my retinologist would disagree, which leaves me wondering whether they are what you describe. I am what you'd call a type 1 personality, and had quite a stressful run up to Christmas with child in hospital, general SAD, and, after the CSR showed up, the fear I was going blind. The condition, whatever it is, has been stable for a couple of months now, and maybe even on the decline. I'm not on any medication other than lanzoprazil for acid reflux and st. John's Wort.
Avatar n tn As a general heuristic, if a person is young, of good weight or perhaps UNDERweight, and shows up with DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis), they can be presumed to have Type 1. Diabetes has been known for hundreds of year. Many hundreds. Its name comes from Latin thru a Greek origin that meant "to walk with legs apart." Odd indeed, but it was documented then that some folks excreted excessive amounts of urine.
2644165 tn?1387247948 They might also see which part is more swollen, which tends to indicate which type of cell is proliferating. Presence of fatty hilum in a node means very, very probably not cancer: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2324368/ Though contrarily the absence of the hilum != cancer necessarily (e.g., inflammatory pseudotumor). Ask the tech what they see when they are doing the sono - some talk, some don't..
Avatar f tn And so I started experimenting with vitamins and health activities. Here's how I solved my chill problems. 1. 8-9 Hours of sleep at night. Sleep somewhat relates to my chills because I was often tired when it hits. 2. Well fed. I was often hungry when it hit and it made me feel like I was shaking and cold to the bone. 3. Excersize. If I ran 5 blocks or 1 mile a day I no longer had bad a chill as I would without any. 4. Vitamin B. It somewhat improves my energy and less chills occured. 5.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
1140722 tn?1266356279 INTRODUCING POSE (Primary Obesity Surgery, Endoluminal) POSE is a type of restrictive surgery that reduces the stomach’s capacity through the use of a flexible tube that is inserted into the mouth to reach the stomach. Because POSE is an incision-free procedure, it offers several benefits including reduced risk of infection, shorter recovery periods, and no visible scarring.
Avatar f tn And they say down the road they may develop stem cell treatments for his diabetes. I heard some are going bankrupt, but we aren't sure which company to use. I see commercials for Via Cord all the time.
1815007 tn?1318864162 no one can say if it will lead to death or not... depends on if you drink with it, use other drugs, your immune system, etc etc etc... i have had it over 30 years and i drank and did drugs up until about 8 years ago and im only stage 2/grade 2 (stage 4 is cirrosis and probably death)... friend of mine died 2 years ago from it, he had it about 30 years too.. so who knows... he did continue to drink heavily and chew alot of percs so that didnt help...
233488 tn?1310696703 it is often associated with dry mouth and is the most severe form. In the second form, the eyes water constantly or often. It is called ‘lipid deficiency’ and is caused by eyelid oil gland (Meibomian Gland Disorder or MGD) problems. In the first form the eye doesn’t make enough tears; in the second form the tears are of poor quality.
Avatar f tn About half of all patients with hepatitis C and cryoglobulinemia experience symptoms. Patients with cyroglublinemia may develop type I, type II, type III or essential mixed cryoglobulinemia. Patients with type I cryoglobulinemia develop increased blood viscosity and are at risk for lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and Waldenstrom's macroglublinemia. Patients with type II and type III cryoglobulinemia are more likely to develop vasculitis, purpura, kidney disease and peripheral neuropathy.
Avatar m tn If it sounds too good to be true... The "human clinical trials underway" have to do with type 1 diabetes. I notice that neither Hashi's nor Grave's is even on the list of future endeavors. Apparently, other autoimmune diseases are much more important. I wouldn't hold my breath...
