In a recent study carried out by researchers at the University of Iowa, it was revealed that electromagnetic fields can help to manage Type II diabetes. In this study, diabetic mice were exposed to static electric and magnetic fields for a particular number of hours daily and it was discovered that this experiment normalizes blood sugar and insulin resistance.

With this discovery, there is a high probability that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be used as a remote control to help manage type 2 diabetes.  A statement from the university revealed that the impacts of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on diabetic mice are “long-lasting, making it possible for an EMF therapy to help manage diabetes all day if applied during sleep.

Electromagnetic Fields alter the balance of antioxidants and oxidants in the liver, which helps to improve the body’s reaction to insulin. The initial finding which was published in Cell Metabolism on October 6 was serendipity. Sunny Huang, an MD/Ph.D. student and Calvin Carter’s co-lead author needed to practice taking blood from mice and how to measure the level of blood sugar.

Sunny Huang was allowed to borrow some of the mice used to study the impact of EMFs on the brain and behavior in the animals. EMFs are available in navigation, mobile devices, and telecommunications. These things require EMFs to function. EMFs are also utilized medicine, for example in MRIs and EEGs.

EMFs are very useful, however, scientists know very little about their impact on biology. While searching for clues to understand the mechanisms behind the biological impacts of EMFs on insulin sensitivity and blood sugar level, Carter and Huang studied a literature review that investigated bird migration in the 1970s. It was discovered that many animals detect the Earth’s electromagnetic field and use it for orientation as well as navigation.

It was really odd because normally these animals have high blood sugar and type 2 diabetes, but all of the animals exposed to EMFs showed normal blood sugar levels.


Carter and Huang worked with diabetes expert Dale Abel and Senior author Val Sheffield, and they discovered that the combination of wireless static magnetic and electric fields helps to regulate blood sugar in three mouse models of type 2 diabetes. The team also discovered that exposure to EMFs for about 100 times during sleep helped to reverse insulin resistance within three days of treatment.
