What Should Be My Diet?

Do I need to take vitamin or anti-oxidants for Diabetes?

If you are eating a balanced diet, there is no proven rule for extra vitamin. Some people take them for mental satisfaction. Vitamin is not the treatment of uncontrolled Diabetes neither vitamin will help to control your Diabetes. If for some reason or other you are not able to take regular meal, i.e., you had an operation or you are unwell, you may take some vitamin for a short while. Till today no scientific study proved benefit of antioxidant tablets in Diabetes. Natural antioxidants available in fresh fruit and vegetable are the best.
