snip Your on the right track. My son takes cinnamon capsules and I'm going to start them so I can get off the insulin i've been taking in the mornings. Go for it girl see if you can find the capsules that should help a lot.

I had my annual check-up today, too. You know what that entails. Everything looks good. Some medication adjustments, but nothing new or radical. Like taking my one blood pressure med at night to avoid low blood pressures two hours after taking it. I was having trouble with low pressures making me very lightheaded in the morning. An increase in my diabetes medication, because the statin the Cardiologist put me on has raised my blood sugars by 20 points.

Thanks Kades I'll look for them. I was drinking cinnamon for a different reason all together. Didn't think it would help for this
Go figure! Still no meds and I'm not even behaving fully with my meals and my sugar is fine. Not that I'm eating badly on purpose, just don't have money to go and buy other foods till friday.
I have been taking Cayenne capsules for my heart, sure I'll find cinnamon at the same health shop.

I wish that I could take cinnamon. It gives me terrrible heartburn & indigestion. I love the smell of it but it just hurts so bad.
