Alternative Therapies and Explanations

Question from Halifax, Canada:

My three and a half year old daughter has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Is nicotinamide available in Canada? Can you request it from your doctor?

Answer:

Nicotinamide is in Canada I think, but the clinical trials did not show that it works to do anything to stop diabetes. Sorry.
