Sister: I have found some that have helped me, but you need to understand that our Common Scourge is very individual. They may not help you.

Plus, they will not help at all if you can't moderate your carb intake and get a little exercise. That is the only common denominator. There are many sources of help in those 2 areas. After 7 years, eating lo-carb is a delight and even with fibromyalgia and arthritis, I walk or garden or otherwise manage to get moving 50-90 minutes/day.

Anyway: here are a few that have helped me: Gymnema, Nopal powder and fenugreek. Just like with a new prescription med, you need to try them 1 at a time and register how you feel. If there is an immediate reaction of digestive distress or any other thing, then stop---there's probably an allergy......Be safe. Be careful. Be hopeful.....And keep us posted...Blessings...Judith in Portland...
