Can Type 2 diabetics take CoQ10?
In respect to this, how much CoQ10 should a diabetic take?
A 12-week study in 50 people with diabetes found that those who received 100 mg of CoQ10 per day had significant reductions in blood sugar, markers of oxidative stress and insulin resistance, compared to the control group ( 27 ). Doses of 100–300 mg of CoQ10 per day appear to improve diabetes symptoms ( 28 ).
Furthermore, does CoQ10 raise your blood sugar? CoQ10 helps cells make energy and acts as an antioxidant. But it hasn't been shown to affect blood sugar control.
Likewise, people ask, is CoQ10 good for type 2 diabetes?
The availability of CoQ10 limits the speed at which glucose can be processed into energy by the cell. In this genetic form of diabetes CoQ10 supplementation has been shown to be effective in reducing blood sugar and improving insulin secretion.
Can you take metformin and CoQ10 together?
If you take Metformin, you should supplement with CoQ10 as the drug reduces your body's natural production of CoQ10 which is critical for cellular energy production. If you take Lipitor or a Statin drug it becomes even more important to take CoQ10 as statin drugs also reduce your body's production of CoQ10.
