I read the same article. What did you see that I must have missed?

The Interactions section has information on how it can affect blood sugar in people with diabetes. I'm guessing that's it.

Oh, I see. From my perspective, lowering blood glucose is precisely one of the reasons I'm looking at using this product. I don't currently take medication for my diabetes (or any medication at all, for that matter), so the possible drug interactions don't concern me at this time.

The risk for hypoglycemia is a small part, bigger is the effect it has on the gut...I don't need anything that might help me go, I have enough problems with that. Same reason I cannot use artificial sweeteners.

I actually have the opposite problem on this Keto diet, due to not consuming a lot of fiber. I could use something to.... er.... encourage that activity.

When you start taking oral medication to treat your diabetes the problem will be solved!

Nope... no oral medication for me. My blood glucose has been between 82 and 93 for the last six days. Rock steady. The last spike I had - if you can even call it that - was 106 on Thanksgiving. And that was only because I went way over on my protein allotment for that day (protein turns to glucose if you take in more than your body uses).

Potato flour may be an option?

I love salads...raw veggies...tell you what, I've learned to sprint while clenching. It's hell getting old and your systems start changing...
