Hi, I have been diabetic from last 7 years and I have been making my own herbal medicine from last 9 months. Mr SB SIDH from SB SIDH FOR DIABETES has helped me to make my own herbal medicine. which is made by myself according to my immune system. Every 6 to 9 days my dose is changed by Mr SB SIDH. I was injecting 38 unit and now with help of proper herbal medicine according to my immune system, I'm injecting only 4 units.All the herbal medicine, which I make is combination of 6 to 7 different herbs. Herbs which are not available here,I get capsules. Herbal medicine is only effective when taken according expert advice.Consult herbal expert like SB SIDH who is only treating diabetes and make medicine according to person immune system needs.
