Robert asks: Can you tell me more about Type 2 diabetes?
"I’m interesting in obtaining information on Type 2 diabetes. I have performed some research of my own and found studies that show Type 2 diabetes may respond to mineral supplementation through oral intake of Zinc in the dosage of 25 mg/day. The studies I’ve read indicates that Type 2 diabetics should probably take zinc supplements to control their insulin levels. As I found out through my research, Zinc plays a key role in the regulation of insulin production by pancreatic tissues and glucose utilization by muscles and fat cells.
I’m interesting in supporting normal body functioning with an over-the-counter dietary supplement product for health preventative purposes. Are there any non-pharmaceutical products available that could be beneficial for type 2 diabetes? Do you have any literature you could share?
Also, could you provide the names of any doctors or organizations that are involved with treating this disease?
Thank You, Robert"
