Diabetes affects more than 12 million  people and is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States.Diabetes primarily affects the small blood vessels.HBOTstimulates angiogenesis to help ameliorate compromised blood flow and prevent organ failure.  HBOT has long been used to treat and heal diabetic wounds.

Research has shown that HBOT can lower blood sugar levels by increasing cellular sensitivity to insulin and skeletal muscle reception of glucose. Recent reports have provided evidence towards linking HBOT to regenerating pancreatic islets of Langerhans, thus potentially producing more insulin.HBOT is often beneficial in treating osteomyelitis and cellulitis, in addition to preventing systemic toxicity and permanent disability.
