Summary: Weight control, medical nutrition therapy, oral glucose-lowering drugs and injections of insulin are conventional therapies for type 2 diabetes. Alternative therapies with anti-diabetic activity are increasing in popularity, with increasing scientific research available to support their efficacy. We are proposing to use such an alternative therapy for the treatment of pre-diabetes or early type 2 diabetes. The proposed project will investigate the anti-inflammatory properties of the Hiper Supplement and it's potential to prevent/reduce inflammation in a mouse model of insulin resistance in a prediabetes state for type 2 diabetes.
