To overcome the problems in diabetes, The National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health, defines complementary and alternative medicine as a "group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine." Complementary medicine is used with Conventional therapy, whereas alternative medicine is used instead of conventional medicine. Some people with diabetes use complementary or alternative therapies to treat diabetes. Although some of these therapies may be effective, others can be ineffective or even harmful. Patients who use complementary and alternative medicine need to let their health care providers know what they are doing. Sometimes it may cause allergic effects on their bodies and also by choosing the conventional therapies the side effects can be removed.
