The Impact of Stem Cell Treatment on Diabetic Foot Ulcers?

Diabetic foot ulcers are open sores or injuries that develop on the feet of individuals with diabetes because of damaged blood flow or nerve damage. Appropriate management, along with prompt treatment, is very important to prevent problems and promote recovery.

Diabetic foot ulcers are a serious problem of diabetes mellitus that typically leads to extended recovery times and also enhanced threats of infection. However, stem cell treatment offers a promising therapeutic strategy to treat diabetic foot ulcers. Stem cell preservation, which involves storing stem cells for potential future use, can further enhance the efficacy and accessibility of stem cell therapy for diabetic foot ulcers. Let's learn how.

Current Treatment Options For Curing Diabetic Foot Ulcers

The current treatment to promote healing for diabetic foot ulcers comprises:

Due to ischemia, infection, neuropathy, and metabolic disorders, the healing gets delayed, and it increases the challenges for both patients and doctors. This is where stem cell therapy comes in.

Stem Cell Therapy - A Hope For Quick Wound Healing

Stem cell treatment has become an encouraging opportunity for resolving diabetic foot ulcers. Cord blood stem cells have one-of-a-kind regenerative properties that have shown remarkable potential in securing wound recovery, minimizing swelling as well as promoting cell regrowth.

As per recent studies, coagulation, inflammation, cell migration, and proliferation are essential for tissue remodeling and healing. Stem cell therapy synthesizes and secrete cytokines that ensure cell recruitment, immunomodulation, extracellular matrix remodeling, angiogenesis, and neurodegeneration. All of these promote wound healing.

Besides, these cells can differentiate into different cell types, like myofibroblasts, keratinocytes, pericytes, and endothelial cells, which promotes wound healing.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Painful?

Most people wonder if stem cell therapy is painful; however, it is not. In fact, stem cell therapy is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that boosts the patient's healing ability. The complete procedure takes around 3-4 hours, from preparation to completing the procedure.

It requires around a day or two to recover, and the patients are required to take over-the-counter painkillers. Sometimes, one round of stem cell therapy is enough; however, if the damage is extensive, multiple stem cell therapy rounds might be recommended.

Preserve Cord Blood Stem Cell For a Hopeful Future

Cryoviva's state-of-the-art cord blood banking solutions offer a protected repository for your infant's valuable stem cells. These cells are derived from umbilical cord blood and also hold tremendous restorative capacity. Our modern facilities ensure the conservation of these important cells and also pave the way for future therapies for diabetic foot ulcers.
