Nashua Chiropractic Info: Chondroitin Sulfate for Diabetes Management

March 23, 2022

In the world of supplements, chondroitin sulfate is well-known for its benefit for cartilage and disc in Nashua back pain. Its reputation keeps growing for influence on specific conditions from cancer to knee osteoarthritis to cells and nerves. New research reveals positive effects on diabetes and its related osteoporosis and inflammation. Moriarty Chiropractic reports on these new studies to help our Nashua 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 decrease blood glucose and reduce symptoms associated with diabetes. In new studies, it relieved 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! One of the latest reports 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 properties, chondroitin sulfate was taken for 8 weeks. Preventive properties were revealed. It helped improve the symptoms of diabetes by raising body weight, decreasing water or food intake, lowering 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 the decrease of 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.
