Can Diabetics Take Vitamin C Supplements?
hi, I want to ask, can people with dry diabetes take 1000 mg vitamin C supplements?
Thank you for the question.
For diabetics, vitamin C has a good role to help control blood sugar levels. Not only that, vitamin C also has a myriad of other benefits, such as controlling blood cholesterol levels, nourish the heart and blood vessels, increase stamina, strengthen the immune system, brighten the skin, accelerate wound healing, optimize healing after illness, prevent the formation of cancer cells, strengthen memory, and so on.
Despite its many benefits, excessive intake of vitamin C is not good for health. According to various literature, levels of vitamin C that are too high in the blood can reduce insulin levels, which are hormones that play a role in controlling blood sugar levels. So, people with diabetes can actually get worse due to this condition. Not only that, excessive consumption of vitamin C can also increase your risk of developing kidney stones, increased stomach acid, and several other health problems.
In a free forum like this, it's not ethical if we specifically discuss the beverage product that you mentioned. But in general, recommended levels of vitamin C for healthy adults range from 75 to 90 mg per day. This dose can be increased depending on the condition (not for the long term), but not to exceed 1800 mg per day.
Hope this helps ...
