Pros:Helps with Type 2 diabetes control.
Cons:A little bit expensive, but your health is worth it.
The Bottom Line: Good combination of vitamins in individual packets formulated specifically to help those with diabetes.
Unfortunately, some of my family members have Type 2 Diabetes (the Adult onset type). But one relative found Nature Made Daily Diabetes Health Pack, which is "scientifically formulated nutritional support for people with diabetes".

This Nature Made product comes in a medium-sized box, in which there are plastic packets of 6 supplements per little packet. In total, there are 60 of the little plastic packets in each box that you can purchase from Costco. The individually-wrapped packets are really handy because you have your vitamins all divvied out for you already and you don't have to open and close a bunch of different bottles to get the same great combination of vitamins specifically made with diabetics in mind.
What's in each individual vitamin packet:
Multivitamin -- A high potency supplement providing essential vitamins and minerals for nutritional support of the body when we don't always eat properly. Lutein included which helps to maintain eye health. This is a capsule-shaped, light brown pill.
Alpha Lipoic Acid -- This is a small round blue pill, which contains green tea and is an antioxidant. It protects against free radicals and helps the nutritional "gaps" which can often be found in people who have diabetes. May also help to maintain healthy nerve function, which is also often a problem with some people with diabetes.
Chromium -- Recommended for proper carbohydrate metabolism. Helps with normal metabolism of glucose. This is a small, light gray-blue round pill. Even those without diabetes occasionally take this beneficial vitamin.
Selenium -- This is an antioxidant which helps diabetic systems ward off free radical (Oxidants) thought to be responsible for cellular damage. Round tan pill.
Folic acid -- Assists in maintaining good heart health. Folic acid is important because it helps achieve normal homocysteine levels in the body which maintains a healthy heart. This is a pale yellow, small round pill.
Vitamin C -- Known to help boost our immune system. Vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and assists in iron absorption in the body. This is a medium-sized white capsule shaped pill.
As I stated briefly above, Nature Made has also included Lutein, important for eye health for everyone, especially diabetics. These vitamin packets provide essential nutrients that may be lacking in your everyday health. Diabetes does put extra strains on our health which need to be taken very seriously. Diabetes is on the rise also, so more people than ever are being diagnosed with this disease. If careful, however, it can be controlled. If you do not always eat a balanced diet and who does, and, you are a diabetic with Type 2 diabetes, Nature Made Diabetes Health Pack can help provide the nutrients that you may be missing.
