Probiotics for Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition where the insulin is either not produced enough or the body is incapable to utilize it. Symptoms of diabetes include increased urine output, thirst, hunger, and fatigue. Although treatment of diabetes depends on the type, probiotics for diabetics help a great deal.

There are primarily two types of Diabetes - Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults. In this form of diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that's needed to control the amount of sugar in your blood.

However, Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is the most common type of diabetes, that usually develops slowly later on in life. T2DM is a metabolic disease characterized by high blood glucose levels, resulting from impaired insulin secretion, insulin resistance, or a combination of both. T2DM might arise from high fat & cholesterol levels, overweight, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and high blood pressure.

Exercise, medication, dietary supplements, and probiotics for diabetes help in managing the T2DM condition in a much more efficient way. Probiotic supplements have immense benefits when compared to regular treatments. Probiotics for diabetics help in balancing microflora in the gastrointestinal tract, thereby preventing abnormal glucose metabolism and also reducing insulin resistance. This helps manage blood glucose levels effectively without any adverse side effects.

People with diabetes, who have higher levels of oxidative stress, can benefit from consuming probiotics for diabetics to help in lowering oxidative stress. 

Probiotics for diabetes Type 2 positively impacts the BMI, total cholesterol levels, LDL, triglycerides, HDL, CRP, HbA1c levels, fasting plasma glucose, fasting insulin levels, systolic and diastolic blood pressure values. Probiotics would also help manage cholesterol levels and improve the intestinal flora to prevent colon cancer as well. At Unique Biotech, probiotics for diabetes type 2 are available as Prodicon capsules.
