Can Stem Cells Be Used to Treat Diabetic Retinopathy?

Posted By Patient Letter to the Editor On October 18, 2009 @ 11:07 am In Diabetes,Patient Questions,Retina,Stem Cell Therapies | Comments Disabled

I have had uncontrolled diabetes 2 for 18 years because no medication in 2 countries has been able to lower my glucose level without dire consequences. I am currently on a diet program that is lowering my glucose to normal.  However, I have nonproliferative retinopathy and cataracts that have worsened my vision to the point I can no longer drive a vehicle. I am an American  citizen doing work in Europe. As a musician, I worry about eventually losing my career. Do you know of anyone who can help restore my vision through stem cell treatment? I also have some neuropathy in my hands and feet. Thank you for any information you can provide.
