With Elderberry’s Promise in Improving Bone Density, Diabetics Have One Less Risk to Worry About
There are some 29 million people with diabetes in the U.S. Managing the disease is a perpetual balancing act that often includes eating right, monitoring blood sugar levels, and learning how to inject — or ingest — just the right amount of insulin. Diabetes can also cause a number of long-term health complications, including blindness and amputations. But there’s another, lesser-known risk to consider as well: osteoporosis. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics are at risk for decreased bone density, which, in some cases, can lead to osteoporosis. But now studies show that doses of concentrated elderberry extract may offer relief.
