The Impact of Red Light Therapy on Blood Sugar Levels in Diabetes Management

in 17. Mai 2024

Introduction to Red Light Therapy and Diabetes:

Red light therapy (RLT) has been studied for various health benefits, including skin rejuvenation and pain relief. Recent research has explored its potential to assist in managing blood sugar levels, particularly beneficial for individuals with diabetes.

Study on Red Light Therapy and Blood Sugar Levels:

A recent study, published in the Journal of Biophotonics, investigated the effects of red light therapy on blood sugar levels. Researchers focused on the specific wavelength of 670 nanometers, known for its deep penetration and ability to influence cellular functions.

Methodology of the Study:

The study involved 30 healthy participants who were divided into two groups. One group received a 15-minute session of red light therapy, while the other group did not receive any light exposure. After the session, all participants were given a glucose solution to drink, and their blood glucose levels were monitored every 15 minutes over the next two hours.

Results of the Study:
The findings were significant:
  • Participants exposed to red light showed a nearly 30% reduction in blood sugar levels compared to their initial measurements.
  • There was also an 8% reduction in the peak glucose levels after carbohydrate intake, indicating a smoother blood sugar curve and less pronounced spikes.

Conclusion and Implications for Diabetes Management:

The study suggests that red light therapy could be a promising non-invasive treatment to help manage blood sugar levels, potentially benefiting people with diabetes or those at risk. It appears that red light therapy enhances mitochondrial function, which plays a crucial role in energy production and glucose metabolism.

Future Research Directions:
While the results are promising, further research is needed to confirm these findings in people with diabetes and to determine the long-term effects and practical applications of red light therapy in clinical settings.

Diabetes Protocol 

Now let's discuss how you can use your Red Light Rising device to replicate the method in this study for yourself.

First, it's worth noting that they used a 670 nm red light in this study.

We do have a device with 670 nm red light, the Target Light 670.

All our other lights contain 660nm red light.

We do however strongly believe that 660 and 670 nm light are so similar as to have almost identical effects.

There is no reason why you could not use your 660nm device for the same purpose.

How To Use Any Red Light Rising Light For Diabetes:

1. Position: Shine the light on your chest, belly, or back.

2. Light Type: Use both red and near-infrared light.

3. Duration: 10 to 15 minutes per session.

4. Distance: 15 to 25 cm away from your skin.

5. Timing: Ideally 45 minutes before eating, but any time works.

6. Frequency: Repeat daily.

This protocol aims to replicate the method used in the study to help manage blood sugar levels.
