Objective: To investigate the effects of muscle inositol on fasting blood glucose (FBG), postprandial 2 h blood glucose (2 h PG) and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbAlc) in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods: Ninety patients with type 2 diabetes were divided into observation group and control group, 45 cases each. In the observation group, muscle myo-inositol was added to the conventional treatment of diabetes, and the control group was treated with conventional diabetes. The clinical efficacy of FBG in 2 groups was compared between the two groups. The proportion of adverse reactions in the two groups was compared. The changes of FBG, 2 h PG, HbAlc, adiponectin and serum inflammatory factors were compared before and after treatment. Results: The effective rate of FBG and 2 h PG in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.05). There was no significant difference in the number of patients with adverse reactions in the two groups (P > O.05). After treatment, 2 The FBG, 2 h PG and HbAlc were significantly lower than those before treatment, and the FBG, 2 h PG and HbAlC decreased significantly in the observation group than in the control group (P < 0.05). The level was significantly higher than that before treatment. The indexes of serum inflammatory factors such as TNF-α and IL-6 were significantly lower than those before treatment. The increase of adiponectin and the decrease of serum inflammatory factor index in the observation group were significantly greater than those in the control group. (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Muscle inositol is effective in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, which can reduce serum inflammatory factors, FBG, 2 hPG and HbAlc.
