There are no magic diet pills. The safest technique for losing weight is to reduce your caloric intake and boost up your physical activity. Maintaining a healthy weight is important for managing diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes). Botanical slimming pills or any type of "diet" pills are considered a quick fix method that does not have long lasting results of weight loss. Often these types of pills will initiate some temporary water weight loss but will not initiate body fat reduction.
