Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Foot ulcers are one of the most common, and serious, side-effects of diabetes. It has been estimated that up to 15 per cent of diabetes sufferers develop a foot ulcer.

When you consider that more than 37 million people in the United States alone have diabetes, it is clear that this is a serious and widespread condition.

Stem cell treatment for diabetic foot ulcers, such as that delivered at the Stemwell Clinic, has the potential to support the generation of healthy cells and improve the quality of life for a patient.

Read on to find out more detail about this worrying condition, and the ways in which stem cell treatment for diabetic foot ulcers may make a positive difference.

What is a Diabetic Foot Ulcer?

People with diabetes are at risk of developing an open sore, or wound, on the base of their foot. It can lead to infection, hospitalization and, in extreme cases, amputation.

Several factors can cause diabetic foot ulcers. Many patients who have diabetes for some time notice a reduced ability to feel pain in their feet due to nerve damage. Poor circulation and irritation or friction can also lead to an ulcer to form.

If you are diabetic and develop a foot ulcer, it is important to seek remedial treatment as soon as possible so that an infection does not develop.

How Stem Cell Treatment for Diabetic Foot Ulcers Works

Many studies have shown that stem cell treatment for diabetic foot ulcers has the potential to deliver improved health and quality of life for sufferers.

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have not yet been assigned a particular purpose in the body, and can develop as healthy tissue for whatever purpose the body requires.

At the Stemwell Clinic, we have found that the stem cells that offer the most promising prospect of healthy tissue regeneration are located in the umbilical cord tissue of healthy, full-term donors.

Once we have harvested the stem cells from this source, they can be applied directly to the site of a problem in the body, or delivered intravenously. The cells can then go to work supporting the regeneration of healthy tissue.

In the case of treatment for diabetic foot ulcers, the application of stem cells has been shown in research to deliver beneficial outcomes and improvements in the quality of life.
