However, I've never heard that it helps lower blood glucose levels. My partner works part-time for the chiropractor who treats me; both of them are well aware that I'm a PWD; and neither has ever made any recommendations for chiropractic care in regard to D.
That doesn't mean it isn't so. I just have no knowledge of it.

Had a convo with my mom yesterday and she's getting treated by a chiropractor for sciatica. She brought up the question of this type of therapy and if it's beneficial to diabetes. She realizes there is no cure for this disease but wants to know if chiropractic care could help lower bs levels. Anyone know?
It could help by reducing stress levels in the body due to sciatic pain and the increased ability to get cardio exercise in. My lower 4-6 discs are herniated and ruptured. I went 4 months without being able to walk up stairs and my a1c went up to 9.9. After my epidural I can now walk 40 minutes a day and have gotten my daily and a1c numbers under control.
