Diabetes is a lack of ability to control the levels of sugar in your blood. This control should be a naturally occurring process performed by insulin produced by the pancreas, but those diagnosed with diabetes are unable to do this, hence the need for insulin injections or tablets depending on whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
These are the most common treatments for diabetes but an increasing amount of sufferers are looking for natural diabetes alternatives.
Health supplements for diabetes are not plentiful, but there are two in particular which have received positive reviews from those who are taking them. Chromium is an essential trace element which works by balancing the blood glucose levels to decrease the need for insulin. Cinnamon tablets may also balance the sugar levels as well help to control food cravings.
