Help for Largo Osteoporosis Related to Diabetes by Adding Chondroitin Sulfate

Known for its blood sugar issue, diabetes can also result in some troubling bone and joint conditions seen at Hollstrom & Associates Inc, like diabetic osteoporosis. This is a Largo health condition that results in weakened bone and joint pain, often associated with inflammation and oxidation. Luckily, chondroitin sulfate has been proven to offer natural relief from these symptoms. Enjoy this blog about chondroitin sulfate and how it can help ease Largo diabetic osteoporosis symptoms that our chiropractic patients may have.


Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally occurring substance found in the cartilage of animals also utilized as a dietary supplement for humans. Research has recounted its ability to reduce inflammation and elevate bone health which makes it a positive choice for those with diabetes-related bone problems. Adding chondroitin sulfate to your overall health treatment plan may be beneficial for you. Hollstrom & Associates Inc can have a more personalized discussion about your specific case.


To give an overview of how chondroitin sulfate may help, let’s look at the diabetes-osteoporosis connection. Diabetes-related osteoporosis is caused by poor blood sugar control mixed with oxidative stress and inflammation. Chondroitin sulfate helps fight all three of these issues by decreasing oxidative stress, stalling inflammatory mediators, and controlling bone metabolism. Additionally, chondroitin sulfate has been reported to enhanced collagen production and calcium absorption in the body—both of which are important for strong bones. Additionally, research discovered that taking chondroitin sulfate on a regular basis can help defend against future bone loss in people with diabetes-related osteoporosis. So even if you already have the consequences of diabetic osteoporosis, taking chondroitin sulfate may still be beneficial for your overall bone health into the future.
