Ozone therapy for diabetes

Table of Contents

There are a lot of studies on the use of ozone gas, water, and oil in healing of diabetic foot ulcers, diabetic lesions, and diabetic neuropathy.  This is a topical application.  

For the systemic treatment of type 2 diabetes, there is a lot of clinical observation by practitioners about it’s usefulness.  More comprehensive clinical trials are still needed to verify just how effective ozone therapy for type 2 diabetes may be.

Based on what we have so far, this seems to be the consensus:

  • Ozone therapy heals lesions and diabetic foot ulcers
  • Far less likelihood of amputation with ozone therapy
  • Glucose parameters are improved with ozone therapy
  • Cardiovascular parameters are improved with ozone therapy

Ozone treatment reduces markers of oxidative and endothelial damage in an experimental diabetes model in rats (source)

“The ozone treatment improved glycemic control and prevented oxidative stress… The results of this study show that repeated administration of ozone in non-toxic doses might play a role in the control of diabetes and its complications.”

Ozone Treatment Reduces Blood Oxidative Stress and Pancreas Damage in a Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetes Model in Rats (source)

“Blood oxidative stress was controlled by ozone as it was showed in the reduction of malondialdehyde, total hydroperoxides and peroxidation potential. In addition, antioxidant endogenous systems were increased (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and reduced glutathione). In line with these results, there was a decrease in the percentage of damaged pancreatic islets by ozone treatment. Ozone antioxidant properties preserved β-cells functions and reduced hyperglycemia.”

Therapeutic efficacy of ozone in patients with diabetic foot (source)

“Oxidative stress is suggested to have an important role in the development of complications in diabetes. Because ozone therapy can activate the antioxidant system, influencing the level of glycemia and some markers of endothelial cell damage, the aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of ozone in the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes…A randomized controlled clinical trial was performed with 101 patients …Ozone treatment improved glycemic control, prevented oxidative stress, normalized levels of organic peroxides, and activated superoxide dismutase. The pharmacodynamic effect of ozone…is considered a link between the four metabolic routes associated with diabetes pathology and its complications. Furthermore, the healing of the lesions improved...There were no side effects. These results show that medical ozone treatment could be an alternative therapy in the treatment of diabetes and its complications.”

Efficacy of different methods of ozone therapy in vascular complications of diabetes mellitus (source)

“systemic (intravenous introduction of ozone…produced better effect on the other signs of diabetic angiopathy and retinopathy, functional and biochemical parameters.”
