Over time, oxidative stress has been implicated with causing the complications of diabetes.  Since this stress can be reduced with antioxidants, many studies are being designed to evaluate the various antioxidants to see if t hey reduce the stresses created.  In a new study on Vitamin C, it was found that antioxidant activity of vitamin C can reduce the complications significantly as encountered in diabetes. Although the amounts were administered through the blood stream (not by oral over-the-counter treatment), it is promising for the options at treating the complications and injuries commonly encountered in diabetes.

In our practice, similar findings are encountered.  When antioxidants are added to the diet, including vitamins and minerals by supplement or by diet high in fruits and vegetables, diabetic complications can improve.  In fact, many of the symptoms of these complications may be improved.  These are promising findings and more will be coming soon.
