Side-effects of D-ribose intake are rare but may include diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, nausea, headache, and low blood sugar. Ribose may cause low blood sugar when combined with diabetes drugs. People who have or are at risk of low blood sugar levels should avoid taking ribose. Also, ribose should likely be avoided for at least two weeks before surgery. If you believe that you are experiencing any adverse reactions, please see your healthcare professional immediately. Each individual may react differently to any product or supplement. We always recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional prior to considering the use of D-Ribose Powder or any supplement.*
