Tailored Management for the Three Highs

Adding Life to Life
1718945187 Connection between High Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure

What Are the Three Highs and Their Potential Risks?

The three highs—hypertension, hyperglycemia (prediabetes and diabetes), and hyperlipidemia—are prevalent worldwide and pose significant health risks. Hypertension increases the risk of stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure. Hyperglycemia can lead to diabetes and its complications, such as retinopathy, neuropathy, and cardiovascular diseases. Hyperlipidemia contributes to atherosclerosis, raising the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Limitations of Current Treatments for the Three Highs

Traditional drug treatments, although commonly used, have several limitations. Hypertension medications may cause side effects like fatigue and headaches. Antidiabetic drugs can lead to hypoglycemia and weight gain. Lipid-lowering drugs may result in liver damage and muscle pain. Additionally, these treatments often require long-term dependency and do not address the root cause, with some patients experiencing variable efficacy.

Applications of Stem Cells (svCell) in Treating the Three Highs

Hypertension:

  • Repairing Endothelial Cells: Stem cells can repair damaged endothelial cells, improving vascular health.
  • Promoting Angiogenesis: Stem cells stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, enhancing blood circulation.
  • Improving Vascular Elasticity: By enhancing vascular elasticity, stem cells help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Hyperglycemia:

  • Differentiation into Pancreatic Beta Cells: Stem cells can differentiate into pancreatic beta cells, restoring normal pancreatic function.
  • Enhancing Insulin Secretion: Stem cells increase insulin secretion, aiding in blood sugar control.
  • Reducing Insulin Resistance: They improve insulin resistance, enhancing cellular response to insulin.

Hyperlipidemia:

  • Regulating Lipid Metabolism: Stem cells help regulate lipid metabolism, lowering blood lipid levels.
  • Reducing Lipid Accumulation: They reduce excess lipid accumulation in the body, decreasing the risk of atherosclerosis.
  • Improving Liver Function: By improving liver function, stem cells help lower blood lipids and maintain overall health.

Stem cell technology shows great potential in treating the three highs by leveraging its repair and regenerative capabilities. It offers a safe, effective, and long-lasting treatment option that addresses the underlying causes of these conditions, significantly improving patient health outcomes.

StemCell(svCell ) therapy potential benefits

svCell therapy, is an Australian patented biotechnology process, that has been used as a complementary approach to treat osteoarthritis in Australia and the United States for many years.

The potential benefits of using svCell therapy in the clinical treatment of osteoarthritis in Australia include:

as the svCell ultrasonic cavitation process uses a person’s own cells, there is a reduced risk of infection or disease transmission;

as the svCell concentration process does not culture cells, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

svCell therapy has the potential for therapeutic advantage as it contains a mix of regenerative cells, with some scientific research suggesting that this mixed cell population may provide superior treatment.

Is the Stem Cell(svCell)therapy safe?

Autologous adipose-derived svCell therapy has a reduced risk of adverse reactions or serious side effects.

As the treatment is autologous, with the svCell regenerative cells derived from the patient’s own body, there is a lower risk of infection or disease transmission. Using the patient’s own, uncultured cells reduces potential risks and complications as associated with rejection and allergic reactions.

The ultrasonic cavitation concentration process does not use any enzymes or animal products.. Within a relatively short period of time, potentially within 4 hours, the patient’s cells are concentrated and injected. As a result, there is a reduced chance of infection, disease transmission, bacterial contamination, or allergic reaction.

Over the last 12 years, there has been a body of evidence in peer-reviewed scientific literature supporting the safety of svCell in the treatment of osteoarthritis for knee and hip disease.

What is involved in a StemCell(svCell )therapy procedure?

The svCell therapy procedure involves removing adipose (fat) tissue from the patient’s abdomen, concentrating a mixture of cells, and then re-injecting the cell concentration into the patient’s painful joint(s).

In Australia svCell therapy procedures must be conducted within an accredited hospital setting under medical supervision with patient’s admitted to the hospital as a day surgery patient. The procedure is usually completed within 4 hours after which the patient may go home.

Preparation

Patients taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications (such as Voltaren and Mobic), corticosteroids, or herbal medications (e.g., Krill oil, fish oil, Vitamin E, and Ginkho Biloba) are advised that these must be discontinued at least 10 days before the procedure, according to standard hospital admission instructions. Those patients taking aspirin (Cartia, etc.), clopidogrel (Plavix or Iscover), warfarin, or anticoagulants for a heart condition or stroke prevention, would be provided specific information by their own doctor on when to stop and restart these medications.

Removal of adipose tissue

Patients receive oral sedation, and local anesthetic, and may be prescribed an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection and are expected to be comfortable, and relatively pain-free.

A syringe or miniliposuction method is used to extract 60-300ml of adipose (fat) tissue from the patient’s abdomen, as that is all that is required. The amount of fat consumed will be determined by the number of joints to be treated. The treating doctor will explain the method of fat extraction to be used prior to the procedure. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, no stitches are usually needed.

Collect regenerative cells

Following adipose tissue removal, a sterile laboratory technician immediately performs the svCell ultrasonic cavitation process to concentrate the patient’s regenerative cells. A flow cytometer is used to count cells and viability and determine the best dosage for the injection of svCell concentrate.

Injection

The injection site is prepared in advance. A Doctor will then inject the svCells into the joint(s).

Where necessary, ultrasound guidance can be used to guide needle placement.

After the injection, patients are monitored for 1 hour before being released to go home.
