Diabetics tend to have other health conditions such as high cholesterol.  Neuropathy is another condition that is common among diabetics.

A new study looked into whether or not Co-Q10 could benefit those with neuropathy.  They took mice with type 1 diabetes and either gave them Co-Q10 or placebo.  They found that it reduced the pain symptoms from the neuropathy and also reduced pro-inflammatory factors.

The study authors concluded,”These results suggest that CoQ10 administration may represent a low-risk, high-reward strategy for preventing or treating diabetic neuropathy.”
