Diabetes: Beyond the Pancreas

In 2017, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that more than 100 million Americans are living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes or are pre-diabetic and at risk for serious health problems. Type 1 diabetes is a condition that occurs when the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, leaving sufferers unable to produce the critical insulin needed to convert glucose to energy. Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, causes insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not process insulin properly. Although the conditions have their differences, they are both similar in how they negatively affect the body and can contribute to the development of many other health conditions and high levels of inflammation that can leave those diagnosed with the disease at risk for serious health problems and even death.

Health conditions linked to diabetes:

Heart and Cardiovascular Disease. People living with diabetes have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular problems, such as heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries) and coronary artery disease.

Nerve Damage. Diabetes causes damage to the small blood vessels called capillaries that deliver oxygen and nutrients to your nerves. When these essential nutrients do not reach the nerves, the nerves die off, causing numbness, burning, tingling and pain in the extremities and limbs. Diabetes can also cause patients to develop cuts and wounds in the feet, but because of nerve damage, these wounds often go unnoticed, which means the risk of infection, amputation and other complications,

Kidney Problems. Diabetes also contributes to the development of kidney disease because it can damage the blood vessels that filter waste material from the blood. This damage can lead to kidney failure, which may mean dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Damage to Vision and Hearing. Diabetes can also cause damage to blood vessels of the retina, which could lead to permanent blindness. Most patients with diabetes are also at risk for developing glaucoma and cataracts. Hearing can also be damaged because of diabetes, leaving people at risk of permanent impairment.

Alzheimer's Disease. Some research has shown that diabetes increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, a condition that causes memory loss, cognitive problems and speech issues.

Dr. Johnson can help treat those individuals who are living with the side effects of diabetes using adipose fat stem cell therapy. Adipose fat stem cells have the powerful ability to heal tissues damaged by diabetes, reduce inflammation and pain, and help return the immune system to normal function.
