Try almonds and oatmeal ~ they regulate your sugar in no time.

The best thing you can do is to follow doctors directions..These things like the cromium and cinnamon haven't proved to regulate you Blood glucose..Taking your meds, exercise, exchanging carbs and such will help you regulate and keep your blood glucose under control..You can do it, it's work at first but you get so use to it and stay healthy and happy..Save your money for good fresh foods.

Cinnamon good for you? Alcohol good for you? Think I'll change my daily cocktail to Goldschlager.

Still taking the cinnamon, but I don't think it did much. However the doc put me on Metformin twice a day which seems to be helping. At least my glucose is in the 'normal' range most of the time now.

One good thing with the diet and exercising....I no longer need to take medication for High Blood pressure

I didn't notice a difference with cinnamon. I take Metformin and Chromium Picolinate (with my doctor's blessings) twice a day. The Metformin helps a lot, and I am sure I have seen a difference since adding the Chromium Picolinate.
