Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 50
Sex Both Genders
Body Types Obese, Overweight
Notes for this study:
Supplementation of 1,000mcg chromium daily for three months in type II diabetics was able to shorten QTc intervals, suggesting a cardioprotective effect (as prolonged QTc intervals are indicative of cardiovascular mortality). Aside from insulin (which was also reduced), no other parameter was influenced.
