Date of publication: November 2017

Publication type: Journal article

In a nutshell: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a major public health challenge that affects countries across the world. The use of pharmacological therapy is often limited in some patients due to a loss of effect over time or development of adverse effects such as weight gain or hypoglycaemia. This has prompted searches into the role of non-pharmacological therapies in T2DM. The availability and use of vitamin supplements in developed countries have increased significantly and there is evidence that certain vitamins may have roles in the management of T2DM.
