I have been on it for about 4 weeks and it has been amazing. My last A1C was over 10 and I was trying everything to get it down. This one little 100mg pill in the morning changed all that. Over the last 3 1/2 weeks i have not had a glucose reading over 130!!

I was taking a cocktail of pills (12 a day, 6 meds)to control my diabetes. I'm down to 3 meds.& my A1C is down,7 from 9 a year ago. I have lost weight and my eating habits have changed for the better. At the beginning, I was thirsty and had dry mouth. Also I had to use the bathroom more than usual. Now that my numbers are better, I feel better.
