New Roads Chiropractic Tip: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

In the nutritional supplement world, chondroitin sulfate is recognized for its care of cartilage and disc in New Roads back pain. Its reputation continues to evolve in influence on specific conditions from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. New research positively affects diabetes and its associated osteoporosis and inflammation. New Roads Chiropractic Center shares these new studies to help our New Roads 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 reduce blood glucose and reduce symptoms related to diabetes. In new studies, it alleviated diabetic osteoporosis and repaired the microstructure of bone via 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) reduced. (1) Part of the chiropractic treatment plan at New Roads Chiropractic Center is nutrition. The use of chondroitin sulfate is providing benefit that New Roads chiropractic patients may enjoy. 

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Diabetic Osteoporosis

In another trial of oral chondroitin sulfate and whether it has anti-diabetic properties, chondroitin sulfate was taken for 2 months. 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 initiated the researchers to write that chondroitin sulfate could avert diabetic osteoporosis through the decrease of blood glucose along with antioxidative stress, anti-inflammation, and regulation of serum levels of OPG/RANKL. In conclusion, they stated that chondroitin sulfate can effectively prevent bone loss triggered by diabetes.
