Correcting diabetes-related disorders with dietary supplements


Correcting diabetes-related disorders with dietary supplements

The easiest way to correct diabetes-related disorders is to fix the main problem, insulin resistance. It has been found that regular exercise and a carefully constructed diet can actually correct most cases of insulin resistance. However, to achieve any benefit, such a program must be strictly followed: unfortunately, diabetics cannot afford the occassional lapses that someone with a normally functioning metabolism can.

Exercise increases glucose entry into muscles, and also lowers glucose levels. It also improves blood flow through tissues and organs, including the brain. Regular exercise can also reduce levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), a powerful inflammatory cytokine in the muscles, remarkably improving muscle function and reducing muscle pain and weakness. There is some suspicion that TNF-alpha is increased in diabetics and my play a role in insulin resistance. N-acetyl L-cysteine, used to increase cellular glutathione levels, also decreases TNF-alpha levels, which may explain in part why diabetics show such significant improvement on NAC supplementation.

Wen tested in thirty-nine diabetics, CoQ10 lowered blood glucose levels by 30-31 percent and ketone bodies from 30-59 percent, which demonstrate significantly improved metabolism. The supplement was especially effective in on patient who was poorly controlled on sixty units of insulin a day before receiving the CoQ10. The dose used in this study was 120 mg a day. It is important to stress that the benefits of CoQ10 go far beyond correcting elevated glucose levels, since it also powerfully stimulates energy production, is a robust antioxidant, and is capable of increasing cellular glutathione levels.
