Supplements During Flu Season for Diabetes Patients

Glucose levels can go haywire when a diabetic is ill, even if it is just a cold or the flu. The flu season is on the attack. How does a diabetic, or anyone for that matter, protect themselves?

Will you be surprised if the results are not what you are wishing for?
