That question can be addressed to the doctor who is presently treating the patient (suppliments are to be taken only after medical examination so that the doctor can monitor the health status on a regular basis ). Taking all the preventive measures and following the advise if the doctor will help to stay healthy and fit. Read more about Diabetes and healthy lifestyle (from health magazines and the internet) so that there is clarity.
