no-pic-patient

6 weeks after his discharge, he only took 13Units of insulin in total for his blood glucose (he used 44Units before stem cell therapy). Mr.Ks was quite excited about this:” “In the last 23 yrs, it’s the first time that i have to take < 15 units and i am so happy about it :)

  

Name: Mr.Ks
Age: 29
Gender: Male
Nationality: India
Disease: Type 1 diabetes mellitus
Treatment procedure: Stem cell therapy (Mesenchymal stem cells – MSCs and autologous stem cells)
Hospital:

Before stem cell treatment for type 1 diabetes mellitus

Mr.Ks is a 29 years old patient from India with type 1 diabetes mellitus. He was diagnosed with type diabetes 22 years ago and then used insulin for his condition. He received stem cell therapy in Beijing Puhua International Hospital.

Before he started stem cell therapy for his type 1 diabetes mellitus, his blood glucose was under poor control, especially his fasting blood glucose (FBG), which was always high. His FBG was 16.4mmol/L at admission. His face presented with xanthochromia due to the hyperbilirubinemia: TBIL 26.6umol/l, DBIL 8.50mmol/l and IBIL 18.1umol/l.

He took 44Units of insulin to control his blood glucose:

In the morning: 32 Units of intermediate-acting insulin

In the evening: 12 Units of intermediate-acting insulin 

Treatment procedure

Stem cell therapy: intravenous injections of mesenchymal stem cells and interventional injection of autologous stem cells.

After stem cell treatment for type 1 diabetes mellitus

With stem cell therapy, Mr.Ks’s condition improved day by day. His blood glucose was under stable control, with his FBG at 4.3mmol/L. He reduced 10 Units of insulin when he was discharged, and his bilirubin level became normal.

Although Mr.Ks was discharged, stem cells kept effecting on him. 6 weeks after his discharge, he only took 13Units of insulin in total for his blood glucose (he used 44Units before stem cell therapy).

In the morning: 11 Units of intermediate-acting insulin

In the evening: 2 Units of intermediate-acting insulin

Mr.Ks was quite excited about this:” “In the last 23 yrs, it’s the first time that i have to take < 15 units and i am so happy about it :)
