Are There Any Vitamins That Help Diabetics?

Question: Hi. I'm Elizabeth from Austin, Texas. Are there any vitamins that help diabetes?

Answer: Hi Elizabeth. There are no specific vitamins that help diabetes, of course it's always good insurance to take a multivitamin everyday. There is one mineral called chromium, that for some people it does help their blood sugar control, but it only helps if you are deficient in chromium and most people are not if they eat a healthy diet. But you can find chromium in things like wheat bran or brewer's yeast and in potatoes and meat and grains. But usually this isn't a problem and a multivitamin doesn't really affect diabetes.
