Avoid products that promise a "cure"
type 2 diabetes. For example, antioxidant supplements (vitamins E, C, and carotene) don't cure type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association does not recommend taking them.1
If you hear about something new to help type 2 diabetes, do some research to find out if it really works. You can also check with your doctor or a
diabetes educator. Your health plan may also provide health information on its website.
