Hyperglycemia caused by diabetes will bring us the long-term damage,it causes glycation. The combination of sugar molecules and protein molecules will transform to advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and produce a lot of free radicals to caused inflammatory reactions, forming various comorbidities, affecting the function of different organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nervous system, heart, blood vessels and damage to bone structure and bone Quality, which leads to bone loss. Therefore, the development of alternative therapies is important for the treatment of diabetes. We assume the 4 months experiment can normalize subjects HbA1c.


In the past research from our team, it was found that far infrared ray (FIR) helps to reduce oxidative stress in the body and is expected to contribute to the treatment of diabetes. Therefore, the team hopes to effectively reduce glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), fasting blood glucose (GLU-AC), insulin (insulin), reduce the body's oxidative stress index, increase Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC) inhibit the inflammatory response and reduce complications through 4 months of IR-C intervention. Which expected to reduce the index of the nitrogen-type first collagen element (Procollagen-I N -telopeptide, PINP) and C-telopeptide of type I collagen (CTx) bone loss index, enhance Osteocalcin's index of bone growth indicators. Along with the Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI), numeric rating scale-knee (NRS-knee) and Geriatric depression Scale-15 (GDS-15) to reduce the number of times the elderly take medication and improve their health and quality of life.
