Chromium May Lower Diabetes Risk:

According to new research people supplementing with chromium, a trace mineral, may be less likely to develop Type-2 Diabetes.

Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey was analyzed.  Researchers concluded that the odds of having Type 2 diabetes were reduced in people who had consumed supplements containing chromium within the last 30 days.

According to the Centers for Disease Control approximately 9% of the more than 29 million Americans have diabetes.  One in three Americans are considered to be prediabetic.  Adults with diabetes have a 50% higher risk of death when compared with individuals without the disease.  Type-2 diabetics make up the majority of people diagnosed with diabetes and are unable to use insulin properly.

According to published studies, people who supplement with the mineral chromium are less likely to have Type-2 diabetes.  Many cases of Type-2 diabetes are preventable according to the Centers for Disease Control.

In the past chromium was popular with diabetics who believed this mineral helped lower blood sugar levels.  However research backing up these beliefs was limited.  This new research renews interest in this mineral.

Further studies are planned.
