Hi Sharon

 

I don't take any because I am never sure if they actually do what they say they will, but i suppose if i don't try then I will never know!!

I know somebody else asked, but I didn't see a response, do the supplements that are supposed to help lower blood sugars help people with type 1 or are they more suited for people with type 2 and/or pre-diabetics? I'm really trying to get my bg under tighter control and I'm willing to try supplements, but just wonder if it's going to be worth it or not.

Someone earlier mentioned cinnamon. There is one brand called cinnulin that claims they remove the toxic elements that regular cinnamon contains. You can pretty much buy it in any brand, Vitacost, Vitabase, GNC, etc

Duroferon.

1 a day for low Iron. Have taken it for years (Doctors orders) but never seen any results.

Then I started eating big white beans everyday and my Iron is now up to normal for a woman of my age. Go figure :o

Am not sure if its the beans themselves or if they just work as a booster for what else that I eat..but as long as it works..

I'm not a great believer in supplements.

Jenn - I'm type 1 and I'm going to carefully try some supplements (not sure what yet).

 

My thoughts: my impression is yes they will have many of the effects on a non-type 1, but the results may be different, as you don't have the same insulin response abilities. (This is all based on my common sense, correct me anyone).

 

So, many supplements should be as beneficial/not beneficial for type 1s, provided you keep flexible and up to date with changing insulin needs of course! I have noticed drs, health workers and naturopaths etc in general can be cagey or just not comment about type 1s and BG changing supplements. There would obviously be dangers if there is say a big change in insulin absorption and you inject too large an amount... dangerous territory perhaps. Certainly more convenient (and perhaps smart) to avoid the danger issue, hey?

 

I'm fed up with terrible insulin response/resistances and I'm certainly going to carefully research and trial some of these. I wouldn't tell any other type 1 to do so, if you do be careful.

I am a Big Guy - always battled a weight problem and I have Type 2 diabetes. My cholosterol is actually naturally pretty good but the Doctors want it even lower because of the diabetes.

Although medication keeps the diabetes fairly under control (glipized ER 5MG), I know it spikes after a meal. Let's say I have some carbs and it is 100 - it will go to 180 for about an hour or so. From what I gather, most diabetics live with this up and down.

A nurse recommended a product to me called Bios Life. I have had every natural product recommended to me at one time or another and I knew she was selling it so I was skeptical. But I did my Google on it and investigated it and only found people raving about it and Doctors prescribing it for diabetes control and big reductions in cholosterol - as much as a statin drug. It is actually in the PDR Physicians Desk Reference.

Let me tell you - I drink this packet 10 minutes before a meal and I no longer spike - I remain around 110-120 the most.

My A1C went from 11.7 to 7.1 and cholosterol from 193 to 167.

You owe it to yourself just to find out about it. Feel free to Email me for anymore self testimonial. You can find out more about it and my own story at

I've been researching studies about ALA and I was quite surprised to see how many studies out there do support the positive effect of ALA! That is one supplement I will add...

 

For now I take:

 

low dose aspirin - for control of inflammation of all sorts

Omega 3

 

What about fiber additives? Has anyone tried those?
