Amy was searching for a way to get her type 1 diabetes under control when she was referred to Okyanos, the leader in cell therapy. After years of regular visits to the hospital for diabetes, neuropathy and fibromyalgia, she was looking for something that would help her lead a healthier, more normal life. No stranger to pain, Amy has had more than her share of treatments, including meditation, biofeedback, physical therapy and medications, getting her to a point of functional with very bad flare ups.

Amy experienced a condition called diabetes burnout which can occur when one gets tired of the endless attention diabetes care requires. After such a period, just 19 and a sophomore in college, Amy woke up one day with swollen feet and persistent horrible pain. She went home to Florida for spring break and ended up in the hospital for six weeks with a neuropathy diagnosis. Neuropathy is common in older diabetics but at a young age, the diagnosis threatened what shred of normal she had left.

I couldnt sleep with a blanket and it was hard to have anything on my feet. I had to shake the bed to distract myself from the pain. My life consisted of sitting in a bath tub for 6 hours a day running water over my feet, Amy explained.

After deciding to undergo adult stem cell therapy, Amy said her doctor was extremely encouraging and really interested. However, Amy stated, Nothing could prepare me for how nice the facility was. Everything was explained and when it came time for the procedure, I had no doubts. It was great.

After some initial hesitation and a set of expectations, Amy says she couldnt be happier with her results. I can now sleep with a blanket. I dont shake the bed the entire night. My feet arent a constant thought in the back of my mind anymore. The other day it was about 4pm and I realized, I havent thought about my feet once today, she shared.

In addition to changes in her daily life, Amys post-cell therapy successes are still coming in. When Amy saw her doctor a few weeks after treatment, and a regular check-up, they discovered Amys A1C levels (test to measure average blood glucose level) were significantly lower.

My doctor hadnt ever dealt with this kind of situation before. I think what really blew her mind was the fact that my A1C has gone down so much. Before the cell therapy, I was at 8.9. Now Im at a 7.8. I havent been that low in years, said a delighted Amy.

According to the American Diabetes Association, over 20 million diagnosed Americans suffer from diabetes and roughly 1.25 million are type 1. Diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the US.

Adult stem cell therapy has emerged as a new treatment alternative for those with auto-immune conditions like diabetes and are restricted in activities they can no longer do but are determined to live a more normal life. Okyanos cell therapy uses a unique blend of adult stem and regenerative cells derived from a patients own fat tissue, thereby utilizing the bodys own natural biology to heal itself.
