I have tried multiple natural treatments for my type 2 diabetes since I was diagnosed in 2015. Some have worked well for a while but eventually stop working. My latest trial was kelp and dark green vegetable juicing. That gave me good results, but juicing takes a lot of time and is messy, so I wanted to find out what is in these vegetables that is helping. It appears to be potassium. Almost everyone is low on potassium and it is very difficult to get the recommended amount of 3000 to 4000mg per day. For that last few days I have gotten good results from taking 2 potassium supplements with every meal that is not vegetables. Each tablet or capsule is only 99mg so it would take alot to get up to the min daily requirement. But it is still helping. I always take it with food to avoid stomach upset, which is common with potassium. I have 4 different potassium supplements so I don't depend on any one supplement. One is just powdered kelp.
I also noticed that some blood pressure medications are potassium based. Modern diets are full of high sodium "foods." Is it possible that by this high sodium diet we are causing diabetes ? I also try to use sea salt whenever I add salt. It has potassium in it. Table salt has only sodium chloride. Preserved foods have the same or sodium nitrate.
Has anyone else tried adding this supplement to their diet to treat type 2 diabetes?
