Do Alcachofa products affect insulin medication? (Diabetes)
From our research, insulin medication may reduce potassium levels. Alcachofa and apple cider vinegar products may also lower potassium. The combination of the two may reduce potassium levels too far. If you are taking diabetes medication as well as Alcachofa products, you should consider eating foods high in potassium, or take a potassium supplement. As always, you should always consult your doctor before to see if there are any conflicting ingredients.
