Known for its blood sugar effect, diabetes can
also bring about some troubling bone and
joint conditions seen at Minster Chiropractic Center, like diabetic osteoporosis. This is a
Minster health condition that leads to weakened bone
and joint pain, often accompanied by inflammation and
oxidation. Luckily, 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 relieve
Minster diabetic osteoporosis symptoms that our chiropractic
patients may have.
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 recounted its ability to
decrease inflammation and improve 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.

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 brought on by poor blood sugar control
mixed with oxidative stress and inflammation. Chondroitin
sulfate helps combat all three of these issues by
decreasing oxidative stress, inhibiting
inflammatory mediators, and mediating bone
metabolism. Additionally, chondroitin sulfate has been
reported to enhanced collagen production
as well as calcium absorption in the body—both of which are
essential for strong bones. Furthermore,
research has found that taking chondroitin sulfate
on a regular basis can help protect
against future bone loss in those who deal with diabetes-related osteoporosis. This means that even if you’re already
feeling the effects of diabetic
osteoporosis, supplementing with chondroitin sulfate can still have beneficial effects on your overall bone
health into the future. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center encourages our
Minster spine pain patients who have diabetes too to consider options like this that
have research support of benefit.
