Known for its blood sugar effect, diabetes can
also lead to some serious bone and
joint conditions seen at Vancouver Disc Centers, like diabetic osteoporosis. This is a
Vancouver health condition that leads to weakened bone
and joint pain, often associated with inflammation and
oxidation. Fortunately, chondroitin sulfate has been shown
to offer natural relief from these symptoms. Enjoy this blog about chondroitin sulfate and how it can help relieve
Vancouver 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 utilized as a dietary supplement
for humans. Research has detailed its ability to
reduce inflammation and improve bone health which
makes it a beneficial 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 triggered by poor blood sugar control
combined with oxidative stress and inflammation. Chondroitin
sulfate helps fight all three of these issues by
decreasing oxidative stress, stalling
inflammatory mediators, and mediating bone
metabolism. In addition, chondroitin sulfate has been
documented to enhanced collagen production
as well as calcium absorption in the body—both of which are
essential for strong bones. Additionally,
research discovered that taking chondroitin sulfate
on a regular basis can help safeguard
against future bone loss in those who deal with diabetes-related osteoporosis. This means that even if you’re already
feeling the consequences of diabetic
osteoporosis, supplementing with chondroitin sulfate can still have beneficial effects on your overall bone
health into the future. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers encourages our
Vancouver spine pain patients who also have
diabetes to consider options like this that
have research support of benefit.
