About this deal
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM): This is an organic sulfur compound and is known for its benefits on joint health. MSM is supposed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. There are no studies on the effectiveness/adverse effects on diabetics. Although it is mentioned that there are no side-effects apart from gastrointestinal discomfort in those suffering from osteoarthritis, it is difficult to know what impact this could have on a diabetic because when a person has type 2 diabetes there is issues on many levels of body function. In absence of any studies on diabetics, we do not recommend you to take MSM.
But according to Barrett, many studies using the term are not yet linked to clinical trials involving actual patients. Vitamin C: People with type 2 diabetes have high levels of oxidative stress due to high blood sugar levels and therefore require more vitamin C which is a potent antioxidant. Vitamin C concentrations have been found to be low in diabetics. Higher vitamin C concentrations are linked to reduced levels of HbA1C and blood glucose. Diabetes also leads to teeth and gum disease where vitamin C supplementation along with dental procedures (scaling and root planing) has been found to improve chronic teeth and gum disease in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics. A controlled research has also showed that vitamin C supplementation for 3 months resulted in lowered blood pressure, blood glucose levels and an increase in antioxidative enzymes.
In a recent study, published online in late August, Wherry and his colleagues showed that, over time, people who have had only two doses of the vaccine (and no prior infection) start to make more flexible antibodies — antibodies that can better recognize many of the variants of concern. Interactions with drugs: As with other vitamins, B9 can also interact with other drugs and cause harm, which is why you must consult your doctor before starting with B9 supplementation, especially if you are taking any other medicines. For example, it can interact with methotrexate that is used to treat cancer; certain medicines for epilepsy can cause low levels of this vitamin in the blood and, conversely, this vitamin can reduce the levels of these drugs in the blood.
Dosage: It is best to start with a low dose (near what our body produces which is less than 0.3mg/day) and increase it gradually. Your doctor will help you decide the most appropriate dose for you B6: As to B6, lower levels of active form of this vitamin(pyridoxal-5’-phosphate or PLP) has been found in newly diagnosed diabetics as compared to non-diabetics. Although a direct correlation between B6 status and diabetes is not clear, there is evidence that its deficiency may help in the progression of some of the complications of diabetes. A study where 10 type 2 diabetics with mild to moderate diabetic retinopathy (retinal damage) were supplemented with B6 for 6 months showed a decrease in swelling of the retina and increase in light sensitivity. Immunologist John Wherry, at the University of Pennsylvania, is a bit more hopeful. "In our research, we already see some of this antibody evolution happening in people who are just vaccinated," he says, "although it probably happens faster in people who have been infected."Vitamin E: Vitamin E is an antioxidant as well and is therefore required in higher levels by diabetics. Vitamin E concentrations have been found to be low in diabetics. A controlled research has also showed that vitamin E supplementation for 3 months resulted in lowered blood pressure, blood glucose levels and an increase in antioxidative enzymes. However, there are other studies that did not find any effect of vitamin E supplementation on insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels. Although there are recent studies that imply a role of vitamin E in controlling diabetes and its complications, the authors suggest that the effect needs to be studied in a large number of patients and over a long period of time to be able to say for sure that vitamin E supplementation indeed can modify diabetic parameters.
