Brief Answer:
It is safe for short term

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Natura can be taken for short term or on and off basis. Prolonged use has been associated with glaucoma of the eye due to sorbitol in it. Otherwise it is quite safe in diabetes.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
