Vitamins for Hypoglycaemia Foods rich in vitamin C, E and B-complex are highly beneficial in the treatment of low blood
sugar. Vitamins C and B increase tolerance to sugar and carbohydrates and help normalise
sugar metabolism. Pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6 help to build up adrenals which are
generally exhausted in persons with hypoglycaemia.
Vitamin E improves glycogen storage in the muscles and tissues. The patient should take
vitamin C in large doses from 2,000 to 5,000 mg, B6 in a daily dose of 50 mg and vitamin E up
to 1,600 IU daily.
