Diabetes Supplements: Final Thoughts

It is important to not replace scientifically proven diabetes treatments with supplements that are unproven. The consequences of not following one's prescribed medical regimen for diabetes can be serious, perhaps even life-threatening.
 
To ensure a safe and coordinated course of care, people should inform their healthcare providers about any supplements for diabetes that they are currently using or considering. Prescribed medicines for diabetes and all other major health conditions may need to be adjusted if a person is also using supplements. Pharmacists can provide information about supplements as well.
 
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or people who are considering using diabetes supplements to treat a child, should use extra caution and be sure to consult their healthcare provider before doing do.
 
If people with diabetes decide to use supplements and notice any unusual effects, they should stop taking these products immediately and contact their healthcare provider.
