In brief: Various supplements
Clinical research has shown that several supplements, including chromium, magnesium, lipoid acid, vanadium can improve the body's response to insulin.
Certain foods such as cinnamon, nopal cactus, and bitter melon can also enhance Insulin sensitivity and thereby lower blood sugar. This list is not complete, and each person's response varies. Don't stop diabetes meds if you do use any of these.
