Re: [IP] stem cells



I'd like a cure for my lupus- I have been offered a new immune system and I
turned it down.
I doubt these transplants will be a cure. Those who had the stem cell
transplant for lupus it wipes out the immune system then the person is given
the transplant. But the triggers for lupus still remain. So it isn't a cure.
Some who have had this transplant for lupus have lupus again because the
triggers are there. Some of the triggers are re-vaccination, mercury,viruses
etc. So now what do these people do? Also when the Lupus as occured again it
has come back with a vengence-worse then before. If the cause for diabetes
were known then removed maybe it would work 100 %. But a transplant wouldn't
prevent diabetes if a person has to go on prednisone and it triggers the
diabetes. What is being done about the causes?
