Hypnosis as an Adjunct Therapy in the Management of Diabetes.

Xu, Yuan; Cardena, Etzel. (Jan-Mar 2008). Hypnosis as an Adjunct Therapy in the Management of Diabetes. International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, Vol 56(1), 63-72.

Because diabetes has important psychological components, it seems reasonable to consider hypnosis as an adjunct therapy for diabetes. This paper examines the empirical literature on the effectiveness of hypnosis in the management of diabetes, including regulation of blood sugar, increased compliance, and improvement of peripheral blood circulation. Multimodal treatments seem especially promising, with hypnosis as an adjunct to insulin treatments in the management of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes for stabilization of blood glucose and decreased peripheral vascular complications.
