Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hi everybody. I have an interest in hyperbaric oxygen therapy and thought this community would be a good place to field my questions.

I'll start off with just two.

The first question has to do with conditions other than diabetes when it comes to hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HOT). For those of you who have had HOT for diabetes, or any other reason, did you notice the treatment possibly helped with a separate health condition you were experiencing? An example would be something like... you had HOT for a toe wound but found your arthritis had significant improvement.

The second question has to do with HOT and how it might help someone with Diabetes Type 1. To answer this one properly it may take someone who has a good scientific understanding of how diabetes works, but I'd appreciate hearing anyone's opinion on this. Say a young person were to have Type 1 and were fortunate enough to be able to have a personal hyperbaric oxygen chamber, and could use it whenever they wanted. How would having a therapeutic device like this and being able to use it at will effect the course of their diabetes over their lifetime?.

Thank you so much.

  1. Hello , I'm not familiar with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I'm sure someone from the community might be able to help you. I would like to know more about this myself. Let us know what you find out. Diane, Team Member
