diabetic foot problems
Anon_148923 posted:
Hi,I have been diabetic for 35 years and i recently had the last 3 digits on my right foot removed. I also had my arteries in my right leg opened and stented. My question is :does anyone know of a better way to have arteries opened up like with a laser instead of the painful way of going thru the groin.

Sorry, the only way I know of is the traditional way.

hi,Stem cells therapy is a cell-base treatment which means that cells which have the ability to regenerate new cells treat disease. Stem cells are this kind of cells which have the ability to differentiate into any type of cells of the body. They also self-renew to produce new cells to replace the damaged ones. In fact, some of stem cells differentiate into insulin-producing cells which increase production of insulin. Insulin is a hormone which regulates blood sugar. Therefore, stem cells can lower blood sugar. Meanwhile, some of stem cells can self-renew to produce more new cells to replace the damaged ones so that it promotes the wound healing of the feet.
i hope that it is useful for you!
