Could Stem Cells Treat Kidney Diseases?

The kidneys perform several vital functions in the human body. Their principal task is remove waste products from the blood and enable us to produce urine, while they also regulate the levels of several substances in the blood, and help to control blood pressure.

As a result, kidney disease can have serious and long-lasting consequences. Gradual kidney failure, which can be brought on by a variety of issues, has traditionally been treated by dialysis, which replicates the function of healthy kidneys.

No cure for kidney disease has yet been found. However, research has shown that stem cell therapy for kidney disease has the potential to mitigate the symptoms and improve sufferers’ quality of life.

Causes and Symptoms of Kidney Disease

The two main causes of kidney failure are diabetes and high blood pressure. Other factors that can cause the kidneys to fail to function adequately include heart disease and liver disease.

When the kidneys lose their ability to filter waste and excess fluid from the blood, it causes toxins to build up.

The symptoms of kidney failure can include severe fatigue, the need to urinate frequently, and shortness of breath. More seriously, it can lead to chest pains and reduced urine output.

As things stand, there is no cure for kidney disease. Any treatment that is administered is designed to slow down the progress of the disease and manage the symptoms that it causes. However, this can be challenging because the effects of kidney disease can vary between patients.

The emergence of stem cell therapy for kidney disease as a treatment that can mitigate its effects and improve the quality of life of a patient is a welcome development.

How Stem Cell Therapy for Kidney Disease Works

It’s important to emphasize that stem cell treatment is not a cure for kidney disease. Like other forms of therapy applied in these circumstances, it has the potential to reduce the severity of symptoms and support an improved quality of life.

Stem cells are undifferentiated, or blank, cells that have not yet been assigned a purpose in the body. They can signal your body to decrease inflammation and repair and regenerate damaged tissue. In the case of kidney disease, stem cell treatment can lead to improved kidney function and reduced inflammation in the kidneys.

At the Stemwell Clinic, we collect stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue of full-term, healthy volunteers. Those cells can then be deployed in one of two ways. They can be introduced intravenously into the body, or injected in targeted therapy direct to the source of the issue.

The anti-inflammatory potential of stem cells, and their ability to generate healthy tissue, suggests stem cell therapy for kidney disease has the potential to optimize the health of patients.
