Re: [IPp] Mineral Supplements??

 Amber, I do not give my son any vitamins, minerals or other supplements except
for a chewable vitamin once a week. There just isn't evidence to support it...
  Moreover, in a preliminary report, vanadium did not help people with type 1
(childhood-onset or insulin-dependent) diabetes.
  A good ol' balanced diet is the best thing for our kids.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone gives mineral supplements to their children
with diabetes. If so which ones? How much? If not why not?? I have heard
chromium and vanadium are good for insulin absorption but I've also read some
negative things with regards to toxicity with taking too much. Any advice?
Thank you!!
