From Oxford, Mississippi, USA:

What would you say to a person with type 2 diabetes who would like to start taking colloidal minerals on a regular basis? Do you think this harmful or helpful? Is there any research being done at the current time?


You do not say exactly what mineral products this person is proposing to take. Colloidal silver was at one time being widely promoted for a variety of conditions, but in 1999, the FDA declared that these over-the-counter products were no longer to be categorised as GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe). There are no scientific reports that any colloidal mineral is of benefit in type 2 diabetes.
