Cryotherapy can help counteract diabetes

clinical studies

Findings show that cryotherapy can help counteract diabetes by reducing inflammation and assisting in weight loss.

Inflammation can cause type 2 diabetes through the damage of beta cells in the pancreas, resulting in insulin resistance and higher than normal blood sugar. Therefore, decreasing inflammation can have a great effect on preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes. Moreover, inflammation is also the culprit in many side effects of diabetes, so lowering inflammation can ease many symptoms and improve quality of life.

Exposure to cryotherapy somehow mimics exercise, since it affects myokines expression in an exercise-like fashion, thus opening another possible window on the therapeutic strategies for metabolic diseases – such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
