As for any other herb , the role of aloe vera in improving the glucose levels is determined from its components.
In a study carried out in mice in a Japanese University, the researchers found out that when they administered aloe vera gel phytosterols in mice, their fasting blood sugar levels were decreased together with an improvement in the overall diabetes control. (1)

As a conclusion, blood sugar levels in the treatment group were significantly decreased to 43 % to the initial values without any adverse reactions (weight gain, appetite changes).
What is more, the triglycerides levels were also reduced by 45 % to the initial values, while cholesterol levels didn't change. (2)

I am sure you can totally succeed with a strong willing and “fighting-spirit”. Think positively. This can help to make the right choices and have further success.
