Every Ingredient Backed by Research

All Diabetes Doctor products were formulated using medical research.  The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, used as our primary information resource, is not supported by any interest group, professional organization, or product manufacturers and evaluates level, quality, and consistency of evidence seen in clinical trials to give guidance on professional recommendations. All ingredients used in our formulas are listed as “possibly effective” and doses match those used in the clinical studies. All studies are open to the public through NIH and are linked on our website.  

 

 Safety

Drug Interactions

Our formulas use 100% natural ingredients and do not have any known drug interactions. However, we advise all patients taking prescription medications to consult with their prescriber and pharmacist before using these products.

Research studies with these ingredients and doses have shown…

 

BANABA 

 

Doses 32-48 mg/day produced a 20% decrease in blood sugar levels and at doses of 50-100 mg/day improved insulin sensitivity (study 1, study 2).  

CASSIA CINNAMON

In a meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled trials (543 patients), cinnamon reduced fasting blood sugars by an average of 25 mg/dL (study).

 

CHROMIUM PICOLINIATE

 

At doses of 600 mcg/day reduced fasting blood sugars up to 31 mg/dL and after-meal sugars by 37mg/dL, as well as reduced HbA1C by 0.6-0.9% over 4 months of use. (study) Another study showed improved insulin sensitivity and reduced weight gain from diabetes medication, glipizide (study).

MILK THISTLE

At 140 mg has shown an 11% decrease in fasting blood sugar levels, a 14% reduction in insulin needs, and up to 1.5% reduction in HbA1C (study). Eight randomized controlled trials in over 500 patients have also shown reduced abnormal liver enzymes in patients with NAFLD and decreased protein in the urine in type 2 diabetic patients with kidney disease (study 1, study 2).

BILBERRY

 

Improved edema and measures of retinal circulatory health in adult patients with diabetes and retinopathy over 6 months. (study)

MAGNESIUM

Research suggests magnesium supplements can decrease fasting blood glucose and improve insulin sensitivity (study).

* Hypomagnesemia occurs in up to 38% of diabetic patients and is associated with a more rapid decline in kidney function.

VITAMIN B12

Improved nerve pain by up to 75% in studies ranging from 8 weeks to 4 months.  (study 1study 2study 3). *Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause of nerve damage. Patients taking Metformin are significantly more likely to have vitamin b12 deficiency and supplementation should be considered.

Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin)

Horse Chestnut Seed Extract

300 mg

 

Research studies with these ingredients and doses have shown… 

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

 

 This powerful antioxidant, when used at doses of 600mg/day or more, has been shown to be beneficial in diabetic neuropathy (study 1study 2).

HORSE CHESTNUT SEED

Over a dozen clinical studies totaling over 10,000 patients have shown that taking horse chestnut seed extract can reduce symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency – such as pain, tiredness, itching, dry skin, and swelling in the legs. Horse chestnut seed extract even seems to work as well as compression stockings, but is much easier to use! (study 1study 2study 3study 4).

 

VITAMIN D3

 

Evidence has shown that Vitamin D deficiency itself can cause pain, let alone make existing pain worse. There is research to support that the lower the Vitamin D level, the higher the intensity of pain (study). Supplementation with the active form of Vitamin D (D3) can replenish low levels which can provide pain relief and support health of small nerve fibers.

VITAMIN B12

Improved nerve pain by up to 75% in studies ranging from 8 weeks to 4 months (study 1study 2study 3), 

*Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause of nerve damage. Patients taking Metformin are significantly more likely to have vitamin b12 deficiency and supplementation should be considered.

BERBERINE

 

In 14 randomized trials, involving 1068 participants Berberine was shown to be as effective as oral diabetes drugs metformin, glipizide and rosiglitazone (known as Avandia) (study).

At 1000 mg/day over 3 months lowered fasting blood sugar by 20%, from 126 to 101 mg/dL and lowered hgA1c by 0.9% (study).

 At 1500 mg/day over 3 months produced about 5 pounds of weight loss, on average, and a 3.6% reduction of body fat (study).

 At 900 mg/day over 3 months reduced BMI levels from 31.5 to 27.4 kg/m2 over 3 months and helped to reduce belly fat (study).

 

GYMNEMA

At 400 mg/day reduced mean fasting sugars by 11%, after meal sugars by 13%, and HbA1C by up to 1.1% after 90 days (study).

 At 400 mg/day over 8 weeks has shown a 5–6% decrease in body weight, as well as reduced food intake likely due to appetite suppression.  Patients also had an improved BMI and smaller waist circumference (study).

 

CHROMIUM

 

At doses of 600 mcg/day reduced fasting blood sugars up to 31 mg/dL and after-meal sugars by 37mg/dL, as well as reduced HbA1C by 0.6-0.9% over 4 months of use. (study) Another study showed improved insulin sensitivity and reduced weight gain from diabetes medication, glipizide (study).

Research studies with these ingredients and doses have shown…

 

CURCUMIN

 

  In a study of 240 patients over 9 months, curcumin extract from turmeric root reduced the number of pre-diabetic individuals who progressed to type 2 diabetes and improved function of pancreas beta-cells (study).

BANABA

 At doses of 50 mg/day  improved insulin sensitivity and helped to preserve pancreas beta cell function in people with pre-diabetes (study)

MAGNESIUM

 

Meta-analysis of 13 prospective cohort studies involving 536,318 participants suggests that a 100 mg/day increase in dietary magnesium intake is associated with a 15% risk reduction for developing type 2 diabetes and other studies demonstrate an even stronger reduction (study 1, study 2).

VITAMIN D3

In a 12 year cohort study of 903 adults, increasing blood vitamin D levels reduced the risk of developing diabetes significantly (study). Evidence suggests that vitamin D helps make insulin-producing cells more resistant to the types of cellular stress encountered during diabetes (study).
