Help for Pflugerville Osteoporosis Related to Diabetes by Adding Chondroitin Sulfate

Known for its blood sugar effect, diabetes can also lead to some troubling bone and joint conditions seen at Pflugerville Wellness Center, like diabetic osteoporosis. This is a Pflugerville health condition that results in 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 ease Pflugerville diabetic osteoporosis symptoms that our chiropractic patients may suffer.


Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally occurring substance found in the cartilage of animals also used as a dietary supplement for humans. Research has reported on its ability to reduce inflammation and elevate bone health which makes it a beneficial choice for those with diabetes-related bone problems. Adding chondroitin sulfate to your overall health treatment plan may be of benefit to you. Pflugerville Wellness Center 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 brought on by poor blood sugar control combined with oxidative stress and inflammation. Chondroitin sulfate helps fight all three of these issues by reducing oxidative stress, inhibiting inflammatory mediators, and regulating bone metabolism. Additionally, chondroitin sulfate has been shown to increase 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 defend against future bone loss in those who suffer with diabetes-related osteoporosis. So even if you already experience the consequences of diabetic osteoporosis, taking chondroitin sulfate may still be beneficial for your overall bone health over time.
