Traditional therapy for diabetes mellitus has focused on supportive treatment, and is not significant in the promotion of pancreatic beta cells regeneration. We investigated the effect of low- energy extracorporeal shock wave (SW) on a streptozotocin induced diabetes (DM) rat model. Methods: The DM rats were treated with ten sessions of low-energy SW therapy (weekly for ten consecutive weeks) or left untreated. We assessed blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), urine volume, pancreatic islets area, c-peptide, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and insulin production, beta cells number, pancreatic tissue inflammation, oxidative stress, apoptosis, angiogenesis, and stromal cell derived factor 1 (SDF-1) ten weeks after the completion of treatment. Results: The ten- week low-energy SW therapy regimen significantly reduced blood glucose, HbA1c, and urine volume as well as significantly enhancing pancreatic islets area, c-peptide, GLP-1, and insulin production in the rat model of DM. Moreover, low-energy SW therapy increased the beta cells number in DM rats. This was likely primarily attributed to the fact that low-energy SW therapy reduced pancreatic tissue inflammation, apoptosis, and oxidative stress as well as increasing angiogenesis, cell proliferation, and tissue repair potency. Conclusions: Low-energy SW therapy preserved pancreatic islets function in streptozotocin-induced DM. Low-energy SW therapy may serve as a novel noninvasive and effective treatment of DM.
