Calcium deficiency is related to many ailments associated with diabetes, including vascular, nerve, and kidney complications.

Antioxidants and carotenoids can benefit diabetic patients.

Chemical signaling between cells
Regulation of hormone and enzyme production and activity (regulation of digestion, fat metabolism, energy production)
