Auburn Chiropractic Info: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

In the world of supplements, chondroitin sulfate is well-known for its care of cartilage and disc in Auburn back pain. Its reputation continues to evolve in influence on specific conditions from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. Recent research positively affects diabetes and its associated osteoporosis and inflammation. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares these new studies to help our Auburn chiropractic back pain as well as diabetic patients. 

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetes and Inflammation

Chondroitin sulfate is a powerhouse potential for diabetes in addition to disc nutrition. It is reported that it can reduce blood glucose and relieve symptoms associated with diabetes. In new studies, it alleviated diabetic osteoporosis and mended the microstructure of bone due to its anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and bone metabolism-regulating features in diabetic rats. The research studies keep coming! A recent report states that these outcomes were attained after 10 weeks of taking chondroitin sulfate, and serum inflammatory cytokines (TNF-A, IL-1, IL-6, MCP-1) lowered. (1) Part of the chiropractic treatment plan at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is nutrition. The use of chondroitin sulfate is showing benefit that Auburn chiropractic patients may appreciate. 

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetic Osteoporosis

In another study of oral chondroitin sulfate and whether it has anti-diabetic features, chondroitin sulfate was taken for 8 weeks. Preventive properties were demonstrated. It helped improve the symptoms of diabetes by increasing body weight, reducing water or food intake, reducing blood glucose, raising bone mineral density (BMD), repairing bone morphology and decreasing femoral osteoclasts. These benefits initiated the researchers to write that chondroitin sulfate could prevent diabetic osteoporosis through reducing blood glucose along with antioxidative stress, anti-inflammation, and regulation of serum levels of OPG/RANKL. In summary, they stated that chondroitin sulfate can effectively prevent bone loss brought on by diabetes.
