Nutritional Deficiency of Diabetics

With the rise of diabetes today diabetics have to also worry about nutritional deficiencies.  With their natural increase in urination and medications, a vitamin or antioxidant deficiency is bound to happen.  Diabetic complications are brought on by oxidative stress, which is an increase in glucose levels that can result in damage to your cells and tissue.  Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E and alpha lipoic acid (ALA) have been proven to be a great help in fighting oxidative stress thus aiding in diabetic complications.[1]

Take a trip and get some antioxidants in your diet! Vitamin C, Vitamin E and ALA can all be purchased in many health food stores.
