whats'up

Born: Olympia, Washington
Background

My name is Sean DePaula and I am from Golden, Colorado. I am 20 years old and a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

I was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes 8 months ago (Sept. 09).

Condition Before Stem Cell Therapy

“…I am still off long lasting insulin, and my short lasting insulin needs have dropped dramatically.”

My symptoms remained relatively stable since I was recently diagnosed. I had to check my blood sugar 8 to 10 times a day. For breakfast, I had to give myself one unit of short-acting insulin for every 20 grams of carbohydrate. For lunch and dinner, I had to give myself one unit of short-acting insulin for every 15 grams of carbohydrate. Every night, I had to give myself about 5 units of long-lasting insulin.

Progress After Stem Cell Therapy

My insulin needs have dropped dramatically. The best thing is that I no longer need to give myself long-lasting insulin. This has allowed me significantly greater freedom and it is very nice to not have to give myself a shot every night. For breakfast, I can have 30 grams of carbohydrate for every unit of insulin. For lunch and dinner, I can have 20 to 25 grams of carbohydrate for every unit of insulin. I think that these numbers may improve even further.

Yes, it was a great experience that has helped improve my quality of life.

Progress Update August 2010

Subject: RE: Progress Report and Patient Reference

I wanted to contact you and let you know that my insulin needs have dropped even further in recent months. I am still off long lasting insulin, and my short lasting insulin needs have dropped dramatically. I no longer take short lasting insulin for breakfast or lunch. And for dinner, I only need between 0 and 2 units of short lasting insulin.

Progress Update November 2011

“As of November 2011, I am taking 16 units of long-lasting insulin every night and I do not have to take short-acting insulin with breakfast. For lunch and dinner, I take one unit of short-acting insulin for every 20 grams of carbohydrate. My bloodwork from September 2011 showed a c-peptide level of 0.91. Although my conditions are slowly worsening, they remain better than when I was first diagnosed with diabetes.

Thanks,

Sean DePaula
