Berberine has been truly miraculous for me. A1c from 7.2 to 5.5 morning blood sugars 88-110. I had not had a blood sugar below 100 in years. I get 400mg tablets from Swanson. I take either 3 or 4 a day (1,2,1 or 1,1,1) Only side effect was some slight abd discomfort which cleared up after a couple of weeks. I couldn't understand why this is not more well known. The only think I could figure o...

Berberine says it helps maintain a healthy blood sugar lever. It does not say it lowers blood sugar. I has done nothing for me and I am taking 900MG a day

I started taking Berberine in Feb 21 when my blood sugars went out of control and found I could not get a diabetes appointment. My glucose levels have come down from 12.7 to 7.7 mmol/l. (UK). I think this is 229 to 139mg/dl (US) I still have a way to go, but I am pleased. My glucose levels are now stabilising. I take 500mg 3 times a day. I am on Novomix 30 insulin 10 units twice a day and Fargixa once a day plus other medications for blood pressure. I have had no side effects.

Basically it does exactly what metformin does only without the side effects. Also has further benefits metformin doesn't. Big pharma does not want you knowing this. Non for profit medical system countrues regularly prescribe berbebrine not metformin etc.

Berberine and other natural herbs did NOTHING to lower my blood sugar, all the stuff did was make me VERY SICK!! Like go to the ER and have pancreatitis!! I thought I was going to die! Be careful what you take.

I will start with saying im very new to this - only taken about 4 days. The first dat i took it, was after i drank a large banana smoothie and about 30m later i puked. I dont know if it was the berberine but suspect it was. The next time i took it was in the morning and it literally took away ALL of my hunger! I only ate in the evening because i felt i needed to feed myself. I took it again in the evening and it did effect my sleep as in I could not fall asleep - even after taking a benadryl and a melatonin. I will continue using this in the AM to lose weight.
