Help for Sitka Osteoporosis Related to Diabetes by Adding Chondroitin Sulfate

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.


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.


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.
