Ammonium Acetate in diabetes treatment
Diabetes is one of the most common non-infectious diseases; it develops when the pancreas produces little or no insulin (type 1), or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces (type 2). Diabetes is considered one of the leading causes of death in most developed countries, and is growing into an epidemic in many developing and newly industrialized nations.
Niacet’s acetates, mainly sodium acetate but also ammonium acetate, potassium acetate, and zinc acetate are used in the production of insulin. Additionally, as a constituent in insulin products, sodium acetate acts as an oxidative fuel preventing the body from producing anti bodies during insulin injection.
