Question Yeast effecting blood sugar?

I have been using nutritional yeast for decades and I put it on every thing. Lately I have decided it stimulates the same area of my tong as salt does, that's good because I need to cut down on salt.

I have been putting flax seed meal in yeast and toasted sesame seed ground , very good tasty healthy snack.

How ever I never heard of it effecting the blood sugar levels. Is it bad for diabetics?

I read about nutritional yeast being good for hypoglycemia in "prescription for nutritional healing" I started looking online about why it's good & found that nutritional yeast has a good amount of protein, which is important for keeping up blood sugar levels, and also a mineral called chromium which helps regulate blood sugar. Since the chromium regulates instead of raising blood sugar levels I read it's also great for diabetics. However if you are insulin dependent definitely speak with your dr and closely monitor you sugar levels since it could reduce your need for insulin.
