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.
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 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.
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
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. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages our
Pflugerville spine pain patients who also have
diabetes to take into consideration options like this that
have research support of benefit.
