The rapidly evolving field of regenerative medicine—including stem cells, 3-D printing and bioengineering, among other technologies—is helping repair, and even regenerate, body parts and tissues damaged by disease, trauma or age. “Regenerative medicine is not trying to create the bionic man but to harness the healing powers of the human body and buttress them,” says Andre Terzic, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine in Rochester, Minn. That means treating chronic or degenerative ailments and replacing failing organs.
My name is Howard and I have been Diagnosed with NASH. I'm not a drinker and my Dr. said it probably started out as Fatty Liver disease. I've been listed for two year's for liver transplant due to cirrhosis of the Liver. When it first started out I was sick all the time and in the hospital 4 time's. In November of 2013 my MELD score went up to 23. But since then I've made lifestyle changes and my meld is down to a 14. I still fight with the chronic fatige but feel pretty good all thing's considered. Has anyone else out there experciened this also ?. I almost feel like it's the calm before the storm.
