Goldenseal is the first herb diabetics ought to take a serious look at. Goldenseal has an insulin-like effect in the body, meaning it lowers blood sugar levels. If you are on insulin and start using goldenseal, it is important to monitor your sugar level carefully, because if the goldenseal (or any other herbs and supplements you are taking) begin to take effect, your need for insulin will diminish. In fact, you may wish to have your doctor monitor your progress occasionally.
Licorice Root has the opposite effect from goldenseal. It tends to raise blood sugar levels or at least to help stabilize them. It works because it aids the adrenal glands. With blood sugar problems, the adrenals are often called upon to produce adrenaline to cause the liver to release sugar in the case of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). One diabetic woman could tell by how she felt when her blood sugar was too high or too low. She took licorice to raise her blood sugar when necessary and goldenseal to lower it.
