There are a number of supplements out there on the market that people are interested in taking because they’ve been implicated in diabetes treatment. Some of the common ones are: Chromium, Vanadate, Cinnamon, Nopalitos. These are all things that have been associated, even in some research, to reduce blood sugars. The trouble is that we don’t have a lot of research that shows that these are effective or safe. They may or may not be effective – we just don’t have enough research to answer that question. The most important thing is that we don’t have enough research to tell us if they’re safe – so we generally do not recommend these supplements for treating diabetes because we don’t want patients to be harmed and we just don’t know if they are safe or not.
