Sandy Springs Chiropractic Info: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

In the nutritional supplement world, chondroitin sulfate is recognized for its care of cartilage and disc in Sandy Springs back pain. Its reputation keeps growing for influence on specific spinal issues from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. Recent research positively affects diabetes and its associated osteoporosis and inflammation. Cross Chiropractic Center shares these new studies to help our Sandy 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 is reported that it can decrease blood glucose and relieve symptoms related to diabetes. In new studies, it relieved diabetic osteoporosis and mended the microstructure of bone via 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) lowered.

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 improved the symptoms of diabetes by raising body weight, decreasing water or food intake, decreasing blood glucose, raising bone mineral density (BMD), repairing bone morphology and decreasing femoral osteoclasts. These benefits prompted the researchers to write that chondroitin sulfate could prevent diabetic osteoporosis through the decrease 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 capably prevent bone loss triggered by diabetes.
