When I was newly diagnosed, I read that drinking two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar before bed would bring down the morning bg reading, so I tried that for a week. There didn't seem to be any difference.

I tested this on identical meals two days in a row, and the apple cider vinegar taken pre-meal did indeed appear to cause less of a rise in BG. I have numbers somewhere, and will post them if I can find them.

Note I'm not a diabetic, though, and I believe I read that the vinegar is much more helpful for pre-diabetics than diabetics.

I have found vinegar mixed with rubbing alcohol 50%/50% makes a great 'ear cleaning solution'! I you wear hearing aids, this is important to know. Of course you cannot drink it!

Just to show vinegar has some health applications.....

Good for cleaning windows, and making pickles.

The only study I read that used vinegar with diabetics...used live/unpasteurised apple cider vinegar, though it referenced an Italian study using red wine vinegar. They took a tablespoon in water before a meal. It was shown to have some characteristics similar to metformin in lowering morning fasting BG, but the conclusion was further study was warranted. Sorry I can't remember the name of the study. I do remember that the study was finanaced by a Cider Vinegar manufacturer though...

It didn't do anything for me. I eat raw vinegars quite often in pickles, and I've seen no difference.

Here is a small and recent (2015) study on vinegar and glucose metabolism. At least with people with milder diabetes eating a normal (high carb) diet, it seems to have lower insulin resistance.

Vinegar Consumption Increases Insulin-Stimulated Glucose Uptake by the Forearm Muscle in Humans with Type 2 Diabetes

One of the other studies referenced here (#31 of 42 studies cited) that vinegar works with high GI diet and not with low GI diet. So, if you are already doing LCHF, you won't see any incremental benefit.

If I wasn't on LCHF and not already taking metformin, I would consider trying it given no side effects.

I've done lots of n=1 experiments, including with ACV. Everything works for 2 days and then back to square one. Seems like my liver is smarter than my brain. So I've decided (for my n) to "strike at the root cause". Nothing works like LCHF.
