Coenzyme Q10 Improves Blood Pressure And Glycaemic Control: A Controlled Trial In Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

Objective: Our objective was to assess effects of dietary supplementation with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ) on blood pressure and glycaemic control in subjects with type 2 diabetes, and to consider oxidative stress as a potential mechanism for any effects. Subjects and design: Seventy-four subjects with uncomplicated type 2 diabetes and dyslipidaemia were involved in a randomised double blind placebo-controlled 2×2 factorial intervention. Setting: The study was performed at the University of Western Australia, Department of Medicine at Royal Perth Hospital, Australia. Interventions: Subjects were randomly assigned to receive an oral dose of 100 mg CoQ twice daily (200 mg/day), 200 mg fenofibrate each morning, both or neither for 12 weeks. Main outcome measures: We report an analysis and discussion of the effects of CoQ on blood pressure, on long-term glycaemic control measured by glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c), and on oxidative stress assessed by measurement of plasma F2-isoprostanes. Results: Fenofibrate did not alter blood pressure, HbA1c, or plasma F2-isoprostanes. There was a 3-fold increase in plasma CoQ concentration (3.4±0.3 µmol/l, P<0.001) as a result of CoQ supplementation. The ma Continue reading >>

    Is anyone taking this supplement COQ10 that might be beneficial for pancreas? My husband asked me to post this question, he heard about this coenzime Q10 about 5 years ago on a conspiracy radio he likes to listen to, and now they are selling this supplement at SAM's club in big boxes. I googled it and I am not sure what the benefits might be for a diabetic type 2. Any thoughts? Has any doctor ever prescribed this? All I found is supplement stores sales pitch.

    I take it because I like to believe it protects my heart. It's not expensive at Costco either. My doctors likes that I take it. Hope I'm not being "suckered"!
    Also, the natural CoQ10 in your body can be depleted by statins.

    Alpha lipoic acid is also antagonistic to CoQ10 and ALA is arguably the most popular supplement among diabetics for good reason. ALA lessens insulin resistance, improves neuropathy, and more. A few ALA formulations contain CoQ10 as well. CoQ10 is especially appropriate for people on statins as Jan mentioned as well as those taking ALA. Between the two that's probably a whole lot of us.

    A 2016 systematic review and meta-analysis of the evidence from randomized controlled trials has shown that daily supplementation with Coenzyme Q10 slightly but significantly reduced fasting blood sugar levels.
