    If you are a Type 2 Diabetic dealing with A1C issues please do your research. There are many MD options that can work but there are also non-MD prescribed options. Two options I have found and use are as follows: ProOmega Blood Sugar – an Omega 3 with Alpha Lipoic Acid and Chromium and Nature’s Bounty Cinnamon 1000mg which helps support Sugar Metabolism.

    I know we cannot talk about this type of medical suggestions on YT but the discussion/question started here. Please offer up your suggestions for supplements/dietary stuff to support each other

    Also the addition of Magnesium has potential to help with Type 2 diabetes.

    Please be sure to research for yourself

    I 100% agree with this. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back and was immediately prescribed Metformin. After taking it for several months and seeing no improvement in my blood sugar, I started doing my own research and first found out that the same medication that was prescribed to “help” with one condition was recalled for an overabundance of a cancer-causing ingredient and that wasn’t the only time it had been recalled. I dove deeper and found out about things like Berberine and cinnamon helping with sugar levels. I went to Walmart and got the cheapest bottle of cinnamon pills I could find in the supplement section and started taking them and stopped taking the metformin right away. Within days (alongside changing my diet which is absolutely necessary) my blood sugar went down. Within just a couple of months, I completely reversed my diabetes, lost weight, and even managed to get pregnant after 7 years of trying. If you think Doctors ALWAYS know best, take this into consideration, while I was in the hospital having my son whom I managed to get pregnant with after reversing my diabetes the doctor who was overseeing me at the time after only reading my chart saw that I had a previous diagnosis of diabetes (without even looking at my blood sugar the nurses took shortly before) never looked at the fact that my blood sugar was about 87 suggested putting me on an insulin IV while I was having my son. The nurses looked at each other like she was insane. When she left they told me it was not necessary. Doctors are trained in medicine, not nutrition and they get kickbacks from insurance companies for EVERY medication they push you. Please just trust me on that. Some doctors are good, and most mean well, but at the end of the day they go home and have bills to pay and don’t honestly care about you as much as you or your family cares about you.

    Research : bitter melon, chaya, and costus igneus. Those are important blood sugar lowering plants. Chaya actually lowers high blood sugar AND raises low blood sugar. There are more, but let’s start there.

    This popped up as i was doing research today. Not a recommendation but something else for people to look into. https://go.natural-reviews.com/best-berberine-supplement

    I can’t speak for their effectiveness, but there are a number of supplements available on Amazon that contain Berberine, Ceylon Cinnamon, Turmeric, Curcumin, and several other things that are all supposed to aid in regulating blood sugar.

    Although Metformin is considered relatively safe, Berberine is supposed to offer the same benefits naturally, from what I’ve read.

    The biggest factor in combating high blood sugar, in my opinion, is diet. Dr. Sten Ekberg on YT has a number of great videos discussing this very topic and other health concerns. What I’ve seen from him made very good sense to me, and I have had good success recently in lowering my blood sugar by following his recommendations regarding diet. I don’t yet have any long term results, but what I’ve seen in the short time I’ve followed those recommendations is quite encouraging to me.

    As I recall, Dr. Ekberg recommends cutting out sugar, grains, and starchy vegetables completely, and eating a low carb diet consisting primarily of vegetables that grow above ground, moderate proteins, and healthy fats. These foods do not readily convert to sugar in the body, so they minimize the body’s need to process the sugar from the foods that are consumed. Surprisingly, at least to me, the healthy fats are the foods that are least likely to convert to sugar.

    Absolutely. Getting enough D, A, and both fats Omegas 3 and 6 are crucial.

    My husband was wrongly diagnosed with diabetes at one point and given Metformin which he took even though I told him not to and he was in bed unable to get up for the entire 8 months he took it. He was also still taking anti-depressants for “clinical depression” he had been misdiagnosed with for 10 years. That doctor moved away, he went in for a check-up and the new doctor said he never had diabetes.

    He had chronic fatigue. Got him properly diagnosed, dumped all meds, and now he has his bad days, but we use only nutritive foods and plant medicines and he can’t work but he does wood work, yard work, builds my chicken coops, puts up fences, built the neighbor a deer blind…..That metformin is poison as far as I’m concerned. I have never heard of anyone who has taken it and felt better or got better and if they did, it was likely the dietary changes they made.
