Many leap ahead of the evidence to claim apple cider vinegar is an effective weapon for curing type 2 diabetes. This is probably because apple cider vinegar has been proven to lower blood glucose levels for a short time in people with pre-diabetes and generally healthy people after a high-GI, carb-rich meal.
 
This research needs confirming in a larger study group, however it is encouraging news for people with an insulin resistance or for preventing pre-diabetes in the future.
 
Meanwhile, there is absolutely no scientific evidence that indicates apple cider vinegar can or will replace insulin and other diabetes medications necessary to cure or manage diabetes.
 
If you’re interested in trying it out, make sure to consult a doctor before you do, as it could interfere with medications used to treat diabetes and make diabetes more difficult to manage.
 
As always, to manage type 2 diabetes well, be sure to eat a healthy and balanced diet.
