A diabetic person excretes in the urine a lot of sugar and other substances, proteins (amino acids such as arginine, carnosine and taurine) and magnesium. As diabetes enhances glycation and the patient is deficient in carnosine, the arteries tend to harden. It is why the incidence of arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarctions and stroke is tree-fold amongst diabetics.

Carnosine is known to be a substance that, via the H3-receptors in the autonomous nervous system, controls the levels of blood sugar. Animal tests suggest that pregnant rats low in carnosine have an increased risk of getting diabetic offspring. This is explained by the fact that carnosine improves the fetal glucose tolerance. So, carnosine may be a beneficial supplement for all diabetic mothers-to-be, as it may lower their children´s risk of diabetes.

Carnosine shows possibilities for all diabetics as it may lower the risk of the complications, i.e., heart events, stroke, peripheral artery hardening, kidney and eye problems.

Please note:

If you have diabetes - You should consult a medical professional before taking supplements.
