Alternative medicine of Type 1 Diabetes

There is no treatment that can replace insulin for anyone with type 1 diabetes. People who have type 1 diabetes must use injected insulin (exogenous insulin) every day to survive.

It's been suggested that some substances may help with blood sugar control, but none have been proved to effectively manage or prevent type 1 diabetes. Some of the substances that have been tested and found ineffective for blood sugar control include nicotinamide, vitamin D, cinnamon, zinc and alpha-lipoic acid.


There isn't yet enough evidence on vitamin E or chromium to assess whether or not these substances might be helpful in lowering blood sugar levels.
