Default Okra water?

Just saw this today and went to check and see if it was true or not, but it seems to be valid. I can't think of why I might try it yet (since my diet and metformin has BS under control), but for anyone who might want to consider it before medication....let us know!

I don't have to read the article. The word "cure" in the title is enough for me to know it's not true.

My sister tried okra and it did indeed bring her levels a bit lower, but it doesn't cure diabetes

My friend has a daughter that's T1 and 16 years old. She posted this for us on facebook for us to see, as she was very upset that someone sent it to her. Personally, I am about to blow my top with all the talk lately of 'cures.' Let me just leave it at, "if any of this BS (not blood sugar!) were actually true that's being thrown around, we wouldn't be having this conversation right now."

I forgot to mention when I posted this that I also know there's no cure, but was asking if it helped bring BS down. I will just continue to take my Metformin and eat low carb to manage mine.....okra is not on my menu at all in my lifetime!

If it cures, it should prevent as well. I shouldn't have diabetes then, because I've eaten lot of it. Never mind, mine was fried in corn meal.

This okra "cure" is sure making the rounds on the various diabetes forums. Sheesh....I can't believe my endo didn't tell me in 2007. Think of all the shots I could have avoided!!!!

Jen - Okra drinker, T1 no more....hahahahahahaha!

Maybe it only works if you soak it in water, but don't eat the okra? My mistake has been eating it all these years.

I love the part that says "U have to keep taking it for a few months before U see results, as most cases might be chronic".

I had okra last night and better BG this morning. May have been the cornmeal. No, just kidding. I'm sure it was the fact I finally got my glycogen back down with the exercising. Went on my bike ride at a little over 100, came in at 74. A 77 three hours later and that was before okra.

If looking for a cure, you walk the shoulder of a local road facing oncoming traffic until you find a 2009 penny laying heads up. If it fell out of a 2012 Toyota Corona 4 door, was only run over by the right rear inner tire of a 2007 dodge 1 ton with 235 85 R16 Cooper tires, pick it up, spit on the head, wipe it off, and put it in your left front pocket. Cross the road and walk back home. That won't cure you but if you do that every day and keep your carbs down, it won't hurt, unless you never find the penny.
