    Lightbulb CLA And diabetes

    if you have family history with diabetes do not touch it!


    READ CAREFULLY

    Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has been promoted as a "fat-burning" supplement and as a treatment for diabetes. However, there is little evidence that it works, and growing evidence that CLA might actually worsen blood sugar control in people who are overweight. .

    Therapeutic Dosages
    The typical dosage of CLA ranges from 3 to 5 g daily. As with all supplements taken at this high a dosage, it is important to purchase a reputable brand, as even very small amounts of a toxic contaminant could quickly add up.


    Therapeutic Uses
    While CLA is often called a weight loss supplement, studies have generally failed to confirm this proposed benefit. 1-4,8-10,15-19,24-26. A meta-analysis (systematic statistical review) of all the data found minimal benefits at most, whether for weight or body composition (ratio of muscle to fat).27

    NOTE: Contrary to early reports, CLA does NOT appear to be a useful supplement for people with diabetes, and might in fact contribute to diabetes in overweight people. In addition, it might increase cardiovascular risk in another manner. See Safety Issues.

    Some animal and test tube studies suggest that CLA might help prevent cancer, but the evidence is preliminary and inconsistent.7,11

    A small double-blind trial found weak evidence that CLA might be useful for high cholesterol.13

    One study failed to find that CLA can enhance immune function.28


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Safety Issues
    CLA appears to be a generally safe nutritional substance.20 However, there are some concerns with its use.

    During the course of investigations into its effect on fat, CLA was found to act somewhat similarly to some oral medications used for diabetes. This led to research into the possible usefulness of CLA as a treatment for diabetes. In one study, CLA reduced blood sugar levels in diabetic rats as effectively as a standard diabetes treatment.5 The same researchers also performed a small, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in humans. The results indicated that CLA improved insulin responsiveness in people with type 2 (adult onset) diabetes. However, several subsequent studies found opposite and rather alarming results: use of CLA by people with diabetes may worsen blood sugar control; in overweight people without diabetes, CLA might decrease insulin sensitivity, creating a a pre-diabetic state.14,21-23 At present, therefore, individuals with diabetes or at risk for it should not use CLA except under physician supervision.

    One study found that CLA impairs endothelial function, suggesting that it might increase cardiovascular risk.29

    Concerns have also been raised regarding use of CLA by nursing mothers. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study indicates that use of CLA reduces the fat content of human breast milk.12 Since infants depend on the fat in breast milk to provide adequate calories and on certain fats to aid proper growth and development, it is probably prudent for nursing mothers to avoid CLA supplements.

    Maximum safe dosages of CLA for young children, pregnant women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease have not been determined.
