Antioxidant Effects And Insulin Resistance Improvement Of Chromium Combined With Vitamin C And E Supplementation For Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In type II diabetics with an HbA1c over 8.5% given 1mg of chromium via yeast, supplementation was associated with a reduction in blood glucose (11%) and HbA1c (0.7%, from 10.2% to 9.5%) alongside an increase in insulin sensitivity.
Lipid peroxidation, as assessed by TBARS, was also reduced with chromium by 18.7%. An increase in glutathoine peroxidase was noted, but catalase and SOD were unaffected.
