Augusta Chiropractic Tip: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

March 23, 2022

In the nutritional supplement world, chondroitin sulfate is recognized for its benefit for cartilage and disc in Augusta back pain. Its reputation grows in influence on specific spinal issues from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. Recent research positively affects diabetes and its related osteoporosis and inflammation. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic shares these new studies to help our Augusta 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 written 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 features in diabetic rats. The research studies keep coming! A recent report states that these outcomes were obtained after 10 weeks of consuming chondroitin sulfate, and serum inflammatory cytokines (TNF-A, IL-1, IL-6, MCP-1) decreased.

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetic Osteoporosis

In another trial of oral chondroitin sulfate and whether it has anti-diabetic properties, chondroitin sulfate was taken for 8 weeks. Preventive properties were revealed. It improved the symptoms of diabetes by increasing body weight, reducing water or food intake, decreasing blood glucose, increasing bone mineral density (BMD), repairing bone morphology and reducing femoral osteoclasts. These benefits prompted 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 conclusion, they wrote that chondroitin sulfate can effectively avert bone loss brought on by diabetes.
