I trying all that i can to help myself keep my bg's stable throughout the day and would be grateful for any and all suggestions. Thanks to all who reply....

All of the studies I read have said they had seen some of the study group have a reduction in blood glucose, however the affect was only temporary. We have had members say it did nothing for them, and others say they saw a reduction at first. I do not remember anyone saying it helped over the long run. Could cinnamon help if you find you have been running high for a couple of days, probably depending on why your running high. Will taking it every day over weeks to a year I suspect not worth the cost. Oh the first study I remember was not taking tablets or pills, it was putting the cinnamon in warm tea that they seen results with. On a side note not all of the oral medications work for everyone. We have to try them to find out what works.

I tried the cinnamon tablets for a short while, stopped them as they caused me a good deal of heartburn and no apparent results blood sugar wise. One thing I do to help with blood sugars is to start a meal with a salad and oil and vinegar dressing. The vinegar in the dressing does seem to give me better readings than if I have the same meal w/o the salad and dressing.

I think most of us have tried them and not seen any significant reduction. Maybe if you are a very early pre diabetic you might see some effect. But if you already have pancreatic damage it will not undo it.
