Anyone had any good results with cinnamon pills?

I was trying them before I ended up in the hospital. Then I wasn't able to continue them. I have wondered if type 1 can benefit from cinnamon and other supplements that are supposed to control bg. I will be curious to see what people say.

I find there's already enough of an unknown "x-factor" when it comes to the rhyme or reason of my insulin needs, so I tend to stay away from things that have an effect on blood sugar levels. Missing taking a supplement or running out of even the variable of digesting the supplement are reason enough for me to stay away. That said, I've heard that chromium and alpha lipoic acid also increase insulin sensitivity.

I am newly diagnosed, and I haven't tried the pills, but I have been chomping on a ceylon cinnamon stick occasionally between meals, and I think I am seeing positive results. (I am assuming you have read about the difference between cassia aka 'Chinese' cinnamon and ceylon aka 'true' cinnamon?) Going to give it a few more weeks, and if it seems conclusive I will probably get the pills, which would be way more convenient.

let me know if it works!

I have been taking them since day one , not stopping because it is part of my regained that's is working. Don't think they can hurt. Try it see if you notice a difference in your number. I think they help.
