    I'd think any natural substance will not be as effective as a pharma. Better control of your diet might help.

    Generally, people with diabetes have a very poor muscle insulin sensitivity.

    There are a couple things you can do:

    1. Stick to low GI carbohydrates like oatmeal, brown rice and sweet potato. Fruits are fine in moderation but the problem with fruit is that it's very high in sugar and will cause a spike in blood sugar and insulin. I would limit fruit to one serving per day max.

    2. A good nutrient portioning supplement like N2slin from n2bm.com will also help because it will increase muscle insulin sensitivity.

    3. Supplement with 6-10g of fish oil per day to increase muscle insulin sensivity as well.

    Muskate has it. Diet - it'll be boring but it's gotta be preferable to the meds right?

    Is this Type I or Type II Diabetes ~ it makes a difference.

    Type I ~ you must stay under a Doctors care, as your Insulin Dosage and Bloodwork are essential to your Continued Survival.

    Type II ~ this is usually caused by Poor Diet, so Diet can Cure it, so you no longer have to take Medications.
    But you still need to stay under a Doctor's care to monitor the situation............................. JP
    P.S.
    So what Type are you, and which Meds do you take, as there may be some Alternatives.
    Again, this is a Conversation that you should have already had with your Doctor.
    Any time that your Prescribed Meds are giving you Side Effects, your 1st line of defense is an Immediate Doctor's Visit.

    I'm thinking type 1. Aren't there sight issues for some regardless of meds with type 1?

    One of the Problems with Diabetes ~ either Type I or Type II.

    Is that you can start to Lose Your Vision, if you don't Control your Sugar............................... JP
    P.S.
    I've had friends Lose Fingers and Toes, and All of them have Vision Issues.
    My Neighbor across the street, has had to have Both Legs Amputated above the Knee.
    Started with the Foot, then Mid Calf, then above the Knee, all in the last 2 years.

    We used to get (still do but not so many) big roadside ads for the symptoms - inc the need to pee a lot. One set of ads included a photo of an amputee. As I said in a recent set of posts a lot of the time with type II it's preventable.

    Type II Diabetes is at Epidemic Proportions these days, with so many people being Overweight.

    The Biggest Problem is a lot of New Patients don't realize that this is a Disease that can Kill.
    They treat it like a bad cold or something, a Nuisance, but Not Fatal.

    When the Exact Opposite is True.................................. JP
    P.S.
    I've talked to a few people who don't Test their Blood as often as they should.
    I'm like so when did you last test, and they tell me last week sometime.
    Then I tell them they should be testing between 3 to 5 times daily, and they look at me like I've got 3 Heads.

    100%. Rather than take control they rely on meds from the doc. I had a back and forth with my mum on constipation. I know her dietary habits and she wasn't keen on the changes I wanted her to make. But, after she argued, I said 'do you prefer how you feel now'? The same ought to apply with Type II. But the obese just don't want to stop eating shit or lose weight.
