DO NOT go running out and buy massive amounts of vitamin C & E and think it is going to replace your meds if you are a Type 2 diabetic. IT's NOT!!!
But, the American Diabetes Association has study results that show that if you suffer from high blood sugar, you probably have whats known as "oxidative stress" on your pancreatic beta cells (those little critters that make insulin). Taking vitamin C and E can help protect what beta cells you have left in your pancreas. Its not going to increase your insulin secretion, but it sure may slow the degeneration of your ability to produce insulin.
So take a good multi vitamin. It can't hurt you, and may actually help you over the long run.
What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn't much better than tedious disease. - George Dennison Prentice
