High Doses Of Vitamin C Scare for Diabetics? / NOT!

I have had some email from friends and have been doing a little research of my own on a recent study concerning Type 2 diabetics should NOT be taking high doses of Vitamin C (I.E. 1000mg or more daily). The hype concerned itself mostly with some possible altered diabetic glucose meter readings from taking higher doses of Vitamin C. I have been doing that for a long long time with no apparent ill effects or false diabetic meter readings that I am aware of.

FDA and Senator Dick Durbin(D)'s schemes to outlaw nearly all nutritional supplements created after 1994 would destroy millions of jobs and devastate economy


More Absurd FDA Action Against Vitamin C

In a time of budget cutting and deficits, the FDA somehow has the capacity to go after one of the safest substances known!
FDA also noted packaging materials place product names in close proximity to the words .Cold Remedy." Further, website claims at issue include .Extra boost of Vitamin C in every RapidMelt,".Extra boost of Vitamin C and Echinacea in every RapidMelt," .Reduces the duration of cold symptoms when taken at the first sign of a cold." FDA said these statements about the RapidMelts Vitamin C products are intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in violation of section 201(g)(1)(B) of the Act (21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(B)). Also, the statements say the products are intended to affect the structure or function of the body of man in violation of section 201(g)(1)(C) of the Act (21 U.S.C. § 321(g)(1)(C))

I would encourage you to take a hard look at this link and study some of these reports, before swearing off Vitamin C in your diet.

I am more inclined to react to and believe in studies involving let's say, 232,007 people as opposed to studies that were short in duration and involved far less people. I have been on 1000mg of Vitamin C and often a lot more for over 40 years with NO apparent or discovered ill effects from same.
