If adding some herbs and supplements to your regimen just popped into your mind, talk to your doctor as soon as possible! Do not take medication without his/her permission, especially if those supplements have the potential to lower your blood sugar.

“People with diabetes may be looking for something that seems less potent than a medication or something that will treat other health issues beyond blood sugar control, such as high cholesterol,” says Laura Shane-McWhorter, a pharmacist and author of The American Diabetes Association Guide to Herbs & Nutritional Supplements: What You Need to Know from Aloe to Zinc.
