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.

Atkins diet along with Chromium and Cinnamon, plus other supplements, and exercise lowered my blood sugar from 302 to 94 in five weeks. No need for insulin. I weighed 317 lbs now I am 288 lbs and dropping.
