Known for its blood sugar effect, diabetes can
also bring about some troubling bone and
joint conditions seen at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka, like diabetic osteoporosis. This is a
Sitka health condition that results in weakened bone
and joint pain, often associated with inflammation and
oxidation. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has been shown
to present natural relief from these symptoms. Keep
reading to learn more about chondroitin sulfate and how it can help alleviate
Sitka diabetic osteoporosis symptoms that our chiropractic
patients may experience.
WHAT IS CHONDROITIN SULFATE?
Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally occurring substance found
in the cartilage of animals also used as a dietary supplement
for humans. Research has detailed its ability to
decrease inflammation and elevate bone health which
makes it a positive choice for those with diabetes-related
bone issues. Adding chondroitin sulfate to your
overall health treatment plan may be beneficial for you.
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka can more individually discuss this with you.
HOW DOES CHONDROITIN SULFATE HELP WITH DIABETIC
To give an overview of how chondroitin sulfate
may help, let’s look at the diabetes-osteoporosis connection. Diabetes-related
osteoporosis is caused by poor blood sugar control
mixed with oxidative stress and inflammation. Chondroitin
sulfate helps fight all three of these issues by
reducing oxidative stress, hindering
inflammatory mediators, and regulating bone
metabolism. In addition, chondroitin sulfate has been
documented to enhanced collagen production
and calcium absorption in the body—both of which are
important for strong bones. Additionally,
research documented that taking chondroitin sulfate
regularly can help safeguard
against future bone loss in people
with diabetes-related osteoporosis. This means that even if you’re already
experiencing the consequences of diabetic
osteoporosis, supplementing with chondroitin sulfate can still have beneficial effects on your overall bone
health into the future. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka encourages our
Sitka spine pain patients who have diabetes too to take into consideration options like this that
have research support of benefit.
