My mother in law was type 2 diabetic. With sugar level 17.5. She was on metformin 500 mg , 3 times a day. She used to take karela juice in the morning every single day., though she didn''t make any drastic changes in her diet. She ate rice and all. Within a year her sugar was in control and she is not having metformin any more. Her sugar is below 5 always now without tablets.

Please don''t spread wrong messages such as karela juice for diabetes, it has nothing to do with diabetes. Please don''t mislead the gullible people who are already burdened enough with the disease. Diabetes specialist dietitian, NHS UK British Dietetic Association

Tarla Dalal    Thank you for your comment. According to a few researches, karela is said to have compounds which have an insulin kind of effect and thus it may help to reduce blood sugar levels. While it is true that each individual is different and each one''s body reacts differently to a particular food, in general karela may help manage blood sugar levels. However, if you have some supportive studies showing no relation between karela and diabetes management, kindly share with us. We would be happy to update the data on our website and help our members benefit from the correct health insights. Regards Tarla Dalal team
