Fructose in homeopathic remedies – safe for diabetics?

Posted by: Melissa Meeuwsen

Can the fructose used to make a homeopathic remedy be detrimental for a person who has clinically diagnosed diabetes?

Absolutely not. Homeopathic remedies have lactose as a base for remedies dispensed in tablets and powders; sucrose as a base for remedies dispensed in globules.
The sugar content is minimal as the dosage is extremely small. Even people with severe diabetes are permitted one teaspoon of sugar per day – the content of ‘sugar’ in homeopathic doses is far less.

Homeopathic treatment is extremely beneficial for people suffering from diabetes; not only for controlling and even normalising their sugar levels but even for managing the complications of diabetes like diabetic neuropathy, etc.
