Seventy-eight percent of patients with diabetes reported taking a natural health product (NHP) for various indications. Some NHPs have shown a lowering of A1C by 0.5% in trials lasting 3months in adults with type 2 diabetes, but most are single small trials so it would be premature to recommend their widespread use. Healthcare providers should always ask about the use of NHPs since some may result in side effects or drug interactions.
