Colorado Springs Chiropractic Info: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

In the world of supplements, chondroitin sulfate is well-known for its benefit for cartilage and disc in Colorado Springs back pain. Its reputation keeps growing for influence on specific spinal issues from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. Recent research demonstrates positive effects on diabetes and its associated osteoporosis and inflammation. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR reports on these new studies to help our Colorado Springs chiropractic back pain as well as diabetic patients. 

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetes and Inflammation

Chondroitin sulfate is powerful for diabetes in addition to disc nutrition. It’s reported that it can decrease blood glucose and relieve symptoms associated with diabetes. In new studies, it soothed diabetic osteoporosis and mended the microstructure of bone due to its anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and bone metabolism-regulating properties in diabetic rats. The research studies keep coming! A recent report states that these outcomes were attained after 10 weeks of consuming chondroitin sulfate, and serum inflammatory cytokines (TNF-A, IL-1, IL-6, MCP-1) decreased. (1) Part of the chiropractic treatment plan at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is nutrition. Incorporating chondroitin sulfate is providing benefit that Colorado Springs chiropractic patients may appreciate. 

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetic Osteoporosis

In another trial of oral chondroitin sulfate and whether it has anti-diabetic features, chondroitin sulfate was taken for 8 weeks. Preventive properties were revealed. It helped improve the symptoms of diabetes by increasing body weight, decreasing water or food intake, decreasing blood glucose, increasing bone mineral density (BMD), repairing bone morphology and reducing femoral osteoclasts. These benefits initiated the researchers to write that chondroitin sulfate could avert diabetic osteoporosis through the reduction of 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.
