Hello Mr. MbLedeg Dedeg thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Maybe as you already know, that ataxia is a medical condition where there is a disruption in body movement due to a problem in the brain. Where the body is difficult to move in accordance with what is governed by the brain or also moving body parts when not wanted. Many can be the cause of this ataxia condition, but the most common is due to genetic factors. However, it can also be caused by alcoholism, certain diseases, and certain drug consumption.
If seen from history, most likely the cause of ataxia experienced by your wife is due to genetic, where this occurs because of genetic mutations passed down from parents to their children. Although there are already several large hospitals that use stem cells to treat ataxia, but the stem cell method for ataxia is still being further investigated. Especially stem cells intended for hereditary / genetic ataxia.
For more details, you can consult again with the doctor who handles your wife, so it can be known whether it is still possible to do stem cells, of course, by knowing the real condition of your wife and the underlying causes. While of course the possibility of treatment provided is the use of drugs, and also some therapies (physical therapy, speech, occupation) / physiotherapy to help sufferers control the movements that arise. Thus the explanation from us, hopefully helps. thanks.
