Importantly, diabetics should learn about and take several supplements that can help them fend off some of the worst aspects of the disease.
1) Vitamin B-1. Diabetics typically urinate a lot, which results in depletion of albumin. This is responsible for kidney damage. It is also hard on the heart.
However, taking a B multivitamin over an extended time may actually be harmful, so stick to B-1.
2) R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)(not just ‘plain’ ALA), has been shown to both limit diabetic peripheral neuropathy, but also to improve circulation in the extremities. This neuropathy and reduced circulation is responsible for most diabetic foot problems.
