The diabetes as a disease has been reported for 3500 years. Although diagnostic and therapeutic approaches have continuously developed, no definitive therapeutic approaches have so far been reached. Diabetes is not a single disease; it interferes with various systems in the body including nervous system and cardiovascular system. The therapeutic lines for type 1 diabetes start with insulin and will need another treatment such as metformin. On the other hand, type 2 diabetes treatment strategies start with metformin and there will be a need for another treatment, insulin according to the disease progression. At certain point, both types of diabetes are treated applying the same strategies. In this study, we followed another strategy by applying the use of apple cider vinegar in patient with type 1 diabetes, and patient with type 2 diabetes following getting each meal. The results showed that glucose levels were within reference range after five days. Taken together, the use of apple cider vinegar as a secondary treatment line with conventional diabetic treatment is promising and needs to be further investigated.
