When it comes to treating diabetes, it requires a mix of strategies,  this include but is not limited to making sure you eat well,  getting highly active, monitoring  your blood sugar level and of course taking your medicines

On the journey staying healthy, you definitely are looking out for everything you could do to improve your health. One easy way to get this done and manage diabetes is taking Multivitamins.

 

Taking multivitamin supplements can make up for the required nutrients your body needs to function regularly, the sensitivity of insulin, and for essential control of your blood sugar level.

 

How do Vitamins and Minerals Help Your Body?

 

To begin with,  the work of vitamins and minerals is to help keep you alive.

Your body needs the right vitamins and minerals at the right time to effectively function. 

 

They help to regulate the blood sugar and sensitivity of insulin, they help to maintain healthy skin, bones, muscles, eyes, teeth including replicating genetic materials and producing new cells.

 

They also metabolize fat, protein and carbohydrates in your food  for you to have the energy  required for movement and processes such as breathing and having your heartbeat 

Overall they help you to keep a strong immune system and stay healthy.

 

Do you really need Multivitamins?

 

It is normal for people to often say  I do not need a multivitamin since I eat well and I get all I need from this food. True you could get all the vitamins and minerals needed by your body from eating well but that doesn’t happen often.

 

It doesn’t always happen that you eat the right foods with the required amount of nutrients every single day. Or many times, some particular vitamins and minerals can only be found in some special kind of foods which by the way you may not even take in months. For example,  adults who do not eat fatty fish or drink milk need extra Vitamin D and  people who are vegetarians  would usually need to take  Vitamin B12 supplements

 

This is what taking a supplement helps you to do, it ensures that you cover up for the missed nutrients from your food.

 

It is also important for you to know that taking a supplement should never be a complete substitute for eating nutritious meals.

Eating less nutritious foods will lead to increased blood sugar level

 

Choosing the right Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement for Managing Diabetes

 

When it comes to deciding which supplements to take for diabetes management, you should be aware that a general multivitamin and mineral supplement most likely will  have  all you need but it happens often that there are some specific nutrients that relate to blood glucose levels  or insulin resistance and there are also some nutrients who play vital roles in the control of blood sugar level

 

Example  of such nutrients are

 

Vitamin D:  it is common to have below optimal levels of Vitamin D but  the sensitivity of  the insulin can be greatly improved up to 60% if Vitamin D is replenished

  • Chromium in the form of chromium picolinate which helps to improve glucose tolerance

  • Having a deficiency of selenium is linked to diabetes risk

Other nutrients helpful  in the treatment of diabetes are

 

  • Calcium: people who have diabetes often have a greater
  • risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis  but adequate intake of calcium can help prevent that
  • Folic Acid: helps to improve the heart

  • Vitamin B12: helps to cure neuropathy which is a common diabetes risk

Just like every other medical recommendation for treating diabetes,  intake of multivitamins  becomes easier as you practice it, as long as you adhere to the recommendations,  the efforts pay off eventually and it is important to also note that, this doesn’t work in isolation, overall it works better in cumulative combination with other strategies  such as

 

Eating plenty of high fiber diets such as legumes, fruits, vegetables, whole grains in combination with your intake of folic acids and vitamin B12 in multivitamins

 

Undergoing regular exercising  to strengthen your bones in combination with your intake of calcium and vitamin D in Multivitamin supplements

 

Avoiding food with salts, processed and fast foods to keep your blood pressure low in combination with your multivitamin intake

 

Don't Just  take any Multivitamin

 

Here is the tricky part, while it is a  healthy practice to take multivitamins, it can be equally harmful if you do not take the right product for example if you use a fake product. Also very important is your doctor's advice on what  multivitamins you should be taking  and probably specific recommendation for brand

 

For the best protection, always go for a supplement that has the required certification from standard regulatory bodies,  you can ask your doctor about this.
