Help for Diabetes Patients: Garlic and Onion juice
Two of the simpliest plants to grow are onion and garlic. All gardeners regardless of ability will grow these. They will be among the most basic plants you'll utilize for mealtime.
"Aqueous homogenate of garlic (10 ml/kg/day) administered orally to sucrose fed rabbits (10 g/kg/day in water for two months) significantly increased hepatic glycogen and free amino acid content, decreased fasting blood glucose, and triglyceride levels in serum in comparison to sucrose controls ."
Various ether soluble fractions as well as insoluble fractions of dried onion powder show anti-hyperglycemic activity in diabetic rabbits. Allium cepa is also known to have antioxidant and hypolipidaemic activity. Administration of a sulfur containing amino acid from Allium cepa, S-methyl cysteine sulphoxide (SMCS) (200 mg/kg for 45 days) to alloxan induced diabetic rats significantly controlled blood glucose as well as lipids in serum and tissues and normalized the activities of liver hexokinase, glucose 6-phosphatase and HMG Co A reductase [18, 19]. When diabetic patients were given single oral dose of 50 g of onion juice, it significantly controlled post-prandial glucose levels .

You'll always use a multi-modality approach when trying to assist diabetics post-collapse. There are limited options to help control type 1 Diabeters without insulin. Realize though that finding natural sources of sugar are very limited post-collapse too. It won't be like today with sugar being a primary additive in many foods.
