Chromium Picolinate For Insulin Resistance In Subjects With HIV Disease: A Pilot Study
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In persons with HIV (where drug therapy is associated with increased risk for insulin resistance) given supplemental chromium at 1mg daily as picolinate, supplementation was associated with a 25% increase in glucose disposal rate as assessed by hyperinsulinaemic–euglycaemic insulin clamp.
There was no influence on viral titres or lymphocytes, and two persons experienced increases in liver enzymes (relationship to chromium uncertain).
