Chi­ro­prac­tic Helps Blood Sugar Level in Dia­betes Case Study

A case study pub­lished in the Decem­ber 7, 2006 issue of the sci­en­tific peri­od­i­cal, the Jour­nal of Ver­te­bral Sub­lux­a­tion Research, fol­lowed a case of a 48-​year-​old man who had under­gone recent blood and urine tests that indi­cated the early onset of dia­betes mel­li­tus as con­firmed by his med­ical physician.

This patient sought chi­ro­prac­tic care to see if non-​medical care could assist him and pre­vent the need for injectable insulin. The author of this report noted that there had been sev­eral pre­vi­ous stud­ies that showed var­ied degrees of suc­cess for sev­eral non-​medical ther­a­pies used for patients with dia­betes mel­li­tus. Such ther­a­pies included vit­a­min ther­apy, exer­cise and acupuncture.

In this case the patient received chi­ro­prac­tic care for the cor­rec­tion of sub­lux­a­tions. Addi­tion­ally he imple­mented nutri­tional changes which included increased pro­tein intake and spe­cific nutri­tional sup­ple­men­ta­tion. He also engaged in a pro­gram of exercise.

Within one month of the ini­ti­a­tion of chi­ro­prac­tic care the indi­ca­tors used to mon­i­tor cor­rec­tions of sub­lux­a­tions showed improve­ment. In con­junc­tion with this the patient’s med­ical physi­cian noted that the patient’s blood and urine sugar lev­els were also bal­anced. He con­tin­ued to have his con­di­tion mon­i­tored and it was deter­mined that he would not need insulin at that time, or in the imme­di­ate future if his con­di­tion con­tin­ued to main­tain itself.

The author of the study made it clear that chi­ro­prac­tic care is not the treat­ment of dia­betes or any con­di­tion, when he stated that chi­ro­prac­tic, “does not look to treat any con­di­tion such as dia­betes mel­li­tus,” How­ever, he did point out that a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion could be made to the health of dia­betes suf­fer­ers if chi­ro­prac­tic were added to care. He con­cluded, “If chi­ro­prac­tic care can offer assis­tance in treat­ment of 5% of the dia­betic con­di­tions com­monly pre­sented to health care providers this alone could offer sig­nif­i­cant life style enhance­ment for those patients pos­i­tively influenced.”
