Diabetes is one of the deadliest diseases of this century. It can cause various complications in the body and cause vitamin deficiencies.

Some of the tools that can help a person with diabetes include knowing what to eat to prevent complications.

Although you may need to eat less sugar and carbohydrates, and exercise more; taking some important vitamins can also help prevent complications.

Here are the vitamins that diabetic patients may need:

1. Vitamin B1 (thiamin).

Thiamine is an important vitamin belonging to the B group of vitamins. It can be obtained by eating these foods, fish, beans and lentils, nuts and seeds, etc.

2. Vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12 is another vitamin that most diabetics need. Its deficiency can cause nerve damage and anemia. Beef, liver, fish, eggs, and fortified grains are good sources of these vitamins.

3. Vitamin D.

Vitamin D is another vitamin that many people with diabetes may be lacking. Its main source is exposure to sunlight.

4. Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is another very important vitamin that people struggling with diabetes may need. It is mainly obtained from fruit and vegetables. Green vegetables and fruits are a rich source of these vitamins.

According to the health line, most people with diabetes tend to have low levels of vitamin C than people who do not have diabetes.

5. Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is another vitamin needed by people struggling with diabetes. It is one of the vitamins that, in addition to vitamin C and A, act as antioxidants in the body.

Rich sources of these vitamins include nuts and seeds, such as sunflower and safflower oil and seeds, spinach, broccoli and pumpkin, almonds, peanut butter, and red pepper.

Even though we can obtain these vitamins from dietary supplements when recommended by a doctor, it is always better to obtain them from food sources.
