Hyperbaric oxygen helps lower blood sugars

Blood sugar control can be extremely difficult for diabetics and is the main reason why they are at higher risk factors for both strokes and heart attacks.Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been known to help sensitize insulin levels and thereby help to reduce blood sugar levels.

In this study, they took 52 diabetic patients who had just recently had a stroke within the past month and divided them into 2 groups — those who had a stroke within 10 days and those who had their stroke within 30 days. They then gave both groups a series of of hyperbaric oxygen treatments and followed (pre and post) their insulin levels, fasting blood sugars, and hemoglobin A1C levels (which shows longer-term blood sugar control).

Both of these groups were able to demonstrate significant improvements in blood sugars with the addition of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Click here to read this study in full.
