Comment:
I'm taking this for a month now and found my level was becoming normal to 124 mg/dL but should of course avoid heavy carbs such as pastries, chocolates, cakes etc. But the thing is that chromium is a chemical and can have a destructive effect to the liver and kidney in using it for a long run. Be cautious and everytime check for the latest updates about it from the internet and medical forum.

I have been trying to regulate my glucose for several years, I was metformin, that did not work, then I started DIAMICROM MR 30mg then it was increased to 90mg. did not work for me, Then I started taking Chromium 500mcg by (Swiss)in the morning, now my levels are so normal and I have also lost weight. I'm so amazed and would like to share this with the world.
