Back then, a degree of caution was exercised too. “More research would be needed before we can come to any firm conclusions about the role chamomile tea plays in fighting diabetes-related complications,” said Doctor Victoria King, Research Manager at Diabetes UK, at the time of publication.
“Diabetes UK wouldn’t recommend people with diabetes increase their chamomile tea intake just yet. Eating a healthy balanced diet, taking regular physical activity and adhering to any prescribed medicines remain key ways to effectively control blood glucose levels, blood pressure and blood fats.
“Good diabetes management will help reduce the risk of serious complications such as stroke and blindness.”
