    I've been on Metformin since 2001, and it wasn't working effectively anymore. Doctor said I could try adding this. I take 200 mcg once or twice a day; twice if I've done a bit more carbs for the day(daily goal 100 carbs or less). I take it with Vitamin C, as I read that helped absorption. I've been doing this for a month, and best readings I've had in years.

    I was diagnosed in November 2015 and picked this up before I was prescribed Lantus. In combination my BG would go as low as 75-80. I stopped taking it simply because I would forget, holidays came and yadda yadda. My BG for two weeks without it averaged 140ish. I've just begun taking it again. I did gain 5lbs since then but that could also be a combination of too many holiday treats.

    After insulin, pills nothing seemed to be getting it my blood glucose down. I am taking 1000 mcg. of chromium picolinate after dinner each night. I take my reading in the morning. This morning it was 100.

    My insulin's have been changed due to my insurance not covering Humalog and Lantus. My sugar levels started going up every day so I happened upon an article regarding chromium. I have only been on it a week but see an improvement every day. will continue to see if it helps. I am also hoping it will help with weight control.
