So I've been reading alot of articles n forums online about acv (apple cider vinegar) helping lower blood sugars.. well i went out n bought some last night n my results have been dramatic with just 24 hours of use. Has anyone else tried this? I take 2 tblsp with 4 oz of water n it makes me have to cut my novolog dose in half at mealtimes

i havent heard of this but will be trying it. will let you know how it works. ta for the info.

I think that it works, I just used a shot glass and had a shot in the morning for a couple of weeks. It seemed to do something but I wasn't organized enough to figure out what it was. It's a great idea to put it up here so the more scientifically oriented crowd can figure out what exactly it does.

Ive heard its brilliant and use it a lot for salad dressings. Never checked my readings so not sure. Will have to do some research

I been taking it every morning before breakfast. And i took it last night before bed. My bg was 110 this morning!! The lowest it has been in the am for a verrry long time. Yesterday i took it the same way in the morning and my bg didn't go above 140 all day. I'm truly amazed. Although I must add i have been taking a 30 min walk everyday so Im sure this is playing a crucial part too.

p.s. adding stevia or splenda to it will make it much easier to drink. Drink with a straw too. It lessens the flavor and keeps the acid from hitting your teeth and damaging enamel. Thanks for the replies :)

so you need to drink it brrrr how much do you supposed to drink and how often?

I agree, drinking it in a small glass of water with a bit of stevia makes the taste much better.

I tried it with water and a straw on Friday and barely managed to choke it down.
Today I added hot water and sweetener ... it tastes like hot apple cider (just don't smell it cuz that vinegar will slap ya right outta that pleasant place)!

wow this is amazing! is def worth a shot, lucky i have some on hand (because i make so much home made mayo :P)

Im going right now to the kitchen to have few spoons :)

I woke up with 3.8 this morning. Really interesting...

I tried it last night. Flatlined over 12 hours and woke up at 80.

Wow i didnt think ppl would try it. Im making my concoction right now :) (acv with water and stevia).. It really helps me keep my bg steady all day. so far no negative side effects.
