If you or someone you care about is suffering from cirrhosis, you’re on the right site. You want to know about stem cell therapy for cirrhosis of the liver, and does it work? Traditional medicine says there is no way to reverse the liver damage after cirrhosis, but stem cells give us new hope.
In a 2015 meta-analysis of those with terminal cirrhosis, there were positive biochemical & cellular changes, as well as improved liver function in the group that received the stem cells.
Another 2016 investigation studied 72 patients with alcoholic cirrhosis. One group went through the standard treatment, and the other, the standard treatment plus two doses of stem cells. After a biopsy at six months and a follow-up at 12 months, there was found to be a reduction of fibrosis of the liver between 25 & 37% and significant improvement in the indicators of liver function in the group who received the stem cells.
In fact, there have been quite a few studies on stem cells for cirrhosis published in the last five years with very promising results indeed. We would be happy to show you more of them upon request.
What is the Best Treatment Option for Decompensated Cirrhosis?
Traditional medicine only offers one main option for treatment of decompensated cirrhosis: a liver transplant. Unfortunately for many people, that’s not an immediate option.
The waiting list for organ donors can be long, and the stipulations to qualify for surgery can be great. Not to mention the cost alone can be prohibitive for many.
Decompensated cirrhosis can be terminal. If you would prefer not to wait for a liver transplant or are unable to receive one, you may be a great candidate for stem cell therapy for cirrhosis.
When your liver has been damaged, over time, whether through disease, alcohol, or other causes, it attempts to fix itself. That process creates scar tissue. When you have been diagnosed with cirrhosis or decompensated cirrhosis, your liver is incredibly scarred and damaged, leading to liver failure. With liver failure, you have probably lost weight and get tired and weak easily. Your skin or eyes may even be turning yellow (jaundice), you may have swelling in your abdomen, bleeding in your gastrointestinal system, or experience mental confusion.
Stem cell therapy focuses on replenishing the damaged area of your body with youthful stem cells, which can promote healing and improved function within the body. At Infinity Medicina Regenerativa, we offer advanced stem cell therapies that you won’t find in the US or almost anywhere else.
