Diabetes-induced cardiac complications include left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and heart failure. Berkson was a rebel at heart and he simply couldn’t do that. A total of 30 male rats were randomly divided into three groups; group 1 as control, group 2 diabetic untreatment, and group 3 treatments with coenzyme Q10 by 15 mg/kg i.p. Q10 zit in gevogelte (kip), rundvlees en broccoli. They were also less likely to die of heart disease than those who did not take the supplements. The same effects were observed upon treatment of apoE-deficient mice and diabetic GK-rats. Children with type 1 diabetes showed increased plasma levels of CoQ(10) in comparison to healthy children.
Neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus and especially aging and Alzheimer’s disease exhibit altered levels of ubiquinone or ubiquinol, indicating their likely crucial role in the pathogenesis and cellular mechanisms of these ailments. There were no adverse effects on oxidative stress markers after treatment with quercetin or coenzyme Q(10) singly or in combination. In summary, these data suggest that coenzyme Q10 effectively targets LV ROS upregulation to limit type 1 diabetic cardiomyopathy. A large, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter, double-blind study involving 328 patients with type-2 diabetes revealed that it significantly improved symptoms. In fact, he says he found the blood levels of CoQ10 to be significantly lower in heart-disease
